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!
