Newspaper Writing Prompts

Learning to write in different genres and for different purposes is an important skill. We have a range of templates to encourage children to write a newspaper article; take inspiration from real historical events, extreme weather events or even the child's family.

When writing an article encourage child to look at examples and think about;

  • The layout - can they make up a headline to summarise their story and grab attention?
  • The audience - who are they writing for?
  • The style - can they tell their story with quotes and facts?
  • The language - what sort of language will they need to use?
