Below you will find some examples of newspaper reports, a checklist, orange words, ISPACE sentence openers, examples of fronted adverbials and a newspaper template. You can either write your newspaper report in your exercise books or type – whichever you prefer. We look forward to reading some of these 🙂 Remember to email us if you require any guidance.
