For oral language on Fridays this term we will be looking at positive pictures and stories from the newspaper/ community newspapers or online sources and discussing the news items.
All children will have a turn at sharing their newspaper news. Please help your child to find one that is appropriate. We will notify your child the week before it is their turn. The children will need to know the main ideas of the article to be able to retell them to the class. They could write 3 - 5 sentences as a summary of the article so they can share it to the rest of the class. We will be focusing on questioning using the 5 W’s (where, what, when, why, who). They will also need to have 2 questions prepared to ask their audience. We can't wait to learn some interesting facts or find out some important information about the world around us!
Here are some websites that could help:
