For oral language on Fridays this term, we will be looking at positive pictures and stories from the newspaper/community newspaper or online sources and discussing the news items.
All children will have a turn at sharing their newspaper news. We will notify your child the week before it is their turn. We will be focussing on questioning using the 5 W’s (where, what, when, why, who). The children will need to know the main ideas of the article to be able to retell them to the class. They could write 1-2 sentences as a summary of the article so they can share it to the rest of the class.
Here are some websites that could help:
