4B Newspaper Articles

The 4B students transformed into print journalists last week, with everyone writing their own newspaper article.

Prior to writing our own, we investigated newspaper articles to discover what information is included and analyse how they are written.

Each student chose a local topic, from BHPS or the community, to report on.

Students were encouraged to include:

  • A catchy headline
  • An interesting “lead” to capture the reader’s attention
  • Informative details
  • Background information
  • Formal language
  • Quotes from relevant people
  • An image.

Everyone did a fantastic job and really got into the spirit of writing like a journalist. You can read all of the newspaper articles below. Press the full screen button to view. Enjoy!

  1. Well done 4B!

    Once again you have done an amazing job with your newspaper articles under the guidance of your fantastic teacher Miss Jordan!

    I try to read the newspaper each day to find out what is going on nationally and around the world. I particularly like reading The Epicure as it’s about food and restaurants – I love food and so does my family.

    Have a great week at school.

    • Hi Michelle,

      See you on Thursday 4B

  2. What a great job you have all done with your newspaper articles. Such a varied and interesting selection of subjects too. I think we might have some budding Journalists in our school.

    How about a regular column in the School Newsletter to profile your class? On subjects relating to the school and Barwon Heads or perhaps even better, topical World news; Earthquakes, Climate Change, Royal Babies, Refugees.

    • Hi mum,

      Yes, that would be a great idea. And people in the school community could see what is happening in the school and outside school instead of listening to assembly all the time. That would be a great initiative.

      From your son, Rocker

      • Hi Rocker and 4B
        Perhaps you should try and make it happen???
        You and your class could ask the Principal. Change doesn’t happen unless you ask – politely

  3. Hi Everyone!,
    Sounds like your all having great fun this year with miss Jordan.
    She was my teacher last year and she was awesome! 😀 Anyway, I had a look though all your articles and I am impressed! I think they sound like professionals have written them! I like to read articals about animals but as I was looking though yours I wanted to read them all because the titles where amazing! 😉

    Some skills you improve whilst writing articals are:
    • Descriptive language
    • You also improve voice in your writing (speaking to the reader)
    • A catchy title (everyone can give them selves a big tick on that! ;D )
    And plenty more!

    What else have you been doing in writing?

    Have a great rest of the year 4B,
    Nelly 😀
