This week on Friday 8th May, we are celebrating VE day - 75 years since the second world war ended in Europe. Friday has been set aside for a special bank holiday so there will be lots of information on the news about this. You may even be having your own at home celebration which we'd love to see photos of on the blogs.
Instead of Topic this week, please do some research into VE day to present a newspaper report about it. To get you started, there is a great video on the BBC including an interview with an eyewitness. I have also put a power point below for you to look at. There will be lots of other information you can find online too.
After that, log in to Purple Mash and there is a template for a newsreport for you. Find it in your 2Dos or under the alerts bell at the top of the screen.
Remember a newspaper report will be written the day after the celebrations so you will need to use words like Yesterday and write in the past tense. It is different from a news report on television. Make sure you use the 'think about' prompts and writer's checklist to help you structure your report.
