Good morning everyone,

Please see today’s activity choices below:

Option 1 (daily activity) – Early Level

How many did you manage to get?

Option 2 (daily activity) – First Level

 Option 3 (week long activity) – First Level and beyond

Summary

Each day this week, you are going to choose a different news item to research: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround.

Read the article and then write a summary (the key points) of what it is about. Remember to include the following:

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Why?

Include no more than five bullet points. Ask yourself: will people be interested or is my message too long to read? Remember to stick to the key points.

After your writing, discuss the key points with a family member. Ask what their opinion (what they think) is and explain your own viewpoint. Try to give at least one reason for your opinion.
