Identifying Newspaper Article Features & Planning Your Article

Today's English activity is split into two tasks: 1. Using the template, identify the key features of a newspaper article. Draw lines to the feature and name it. Attached is a help sheet and list of features. 2. Watch the Youtube video (link on Firefly task) that mentions the robbery of Gringotts Bank and also re-read pages 151 and 152 of the book which describes the same event. Using the second and third pages of the template, start to plan your newspaper article. Looking to impress? I will be looking in particular at the likeness to the real story. Can you replicate the event in the article as close to what has been described in the film and book? Can you use real characters for interviews or quotes? Can you use words/phrases from the book to make your writing more detailed (magpie)? REMEMBER - you are not writing the article today.
