What are the features of a newspaper? - BBC Bitesize


Make sure you include...

  • Make your headline short and snappy.
  • In the first sentence sum up what the story is about.
  • Write your report in the third person and the past tense.
  • Split your newspaper report up into paragraphs to help the reader clearly understand the information.
  • If you use quotes to make your report more interesting, don't forget to use speech marks!
  • Use a photo or drawing with a caption to give the reader more information.
  • Fill your newspaper report with both facts and opinions. Facts give the reader all of the information they need by using the 5 Ws (Who? What? When? Where? Why?)
