Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


This week in writing we will be delving into the tragic true story of Robert Falcon Scott and his expedition to the Antarctic. Through this heartbreaking journey we will rediscover the key features of news paper articles before we plan and create our own news paper article on Scott and his crew and how they met their untimely demise.


Please follow the days carefully as we firstly look at sequencing the story, planning and writing, remembering to include the introduction (5 Ws), interviews, pictures and caption, past tense and the reorientation (ending).

Slides for the entire week

Tuesday - To plan a news report about Captains Scott's journey

Wednesday and Friday - Follow the slides from the start of the week as we now begin to write our news report over two days
