Exploring (10-20 mins) Planning (20-40mins)

Exploring: You can explore your ideas through acting, drawing or you could even video call a friend and act it with them.

You work for a newspaper and there has been huge interest in your Iron Man story.  Now you hear that it has returned and it has been trapped by a group or farmers.

  • Who told you about it?
  • How are people feeling about this?
  • Do you think that’s the end of the Iron Man?
  • Who do you think is the hero of this story?

Planning: This week we are going to write a newspaper article about return and capture of the Iron Man. You need to come up with ideas for the key features of a newspaper. (If you need a reminder of the features of a newspaper, download the example below)

REMEMBER to plan in words and phrase but not full sentences. You can write your quote in a full sentence as you should record exactly what your eyewitness said.

Download the Instructions and template below.
