Thank you so much for your great accounts of what school life was like in the past. We read accounts from our Grandparents and Great-Grandparents and collected facts about school life long ago. We fed back to each other and collected information about what we had found out.
Sources of evidence - personal accounts.
We gathered all of our learning on our Writer's Wall.
Creating News Reports
First we watched news reports such as NewsRound and made a list of features. Then we planned our news report using all we had learned from our research. Next, we orally rehearsed it with our friends.
Oral Rehearsal with news jingles
In our news reports we practised presenting our news and added in detail about a Victorian Schools. We needed to talk using a more formal tone and present clearly so all could hear and understand. We also rehearsed added sounds to our reports to support the structure of our report.
