Year 5 | Writing a Newspaper Article Worksheets

In these Year 5 writing a newspaper article worksheets, your learners embark on an engaging journey to craft a plan for a newspaper article narrating the thrilling tale of an alien landing in their school playground. The structured plan comprises five essential components, neatly presented in boxes, ensuring the inclusion of key features in the article: a heading, subheading, first sentence, the body of the report, and a picture with a caption. Guided by this comprehensive plan, your class then transitions into the exciting task of writing the newspaper article itself. As they weave their narrative, children are prompted to consider not only the content but also the layout and presentation, ensuring a well-structured and captivating piece.

This worksheet serves as an excellent introduction to newspaper articles, guiding your class through the process of planning and writing while emphasising the importance of features like attention-grabbing headings. Through this exercise, learners not only gain valuable writing skills but also develop an understanding of the strategic elements that make newspaper articles compelling and informative.
