Last week in English, we identified the key features for a newspaper report (headline, byline, captions, pictures, introduction and paragraphs), planned our ideas and gathered fantastic research. This week, bringing all of these ideas together to write our own newspaper reports on the cholera outbreak in 1832 Hutton Rudby.

Can you think of your own gripping headline? What does a headline need to be like?

LINEN WEAVER CARRIES CHOLERA

DIRTY DISEASED VILLAGE

Write your introduction paragraph, remember to include: Who? What? When? Where? How?

Write your main paragraph:

How many people had died in Hutton Rudby?

Who was the first person to bring Cholera into Hutton Rudby? Where did he come from?

Are there any pictures you could link with this report? What would the caption be?

Here is an example newspaper report below…

In English this week, we will be looking at different newspaper reports and identifying the special ingredients needed to write a fantastic newspaper report. If you are at home, try to find some newspaper reports either online or in your home to read. I have attached an example below.

Can you answer these questions about the report?

What feature is found at the top of a newspaper? What feature is circled in red? Do the pictures relate to the title? What is the description under the pictures called? What does the first paragraph tell us?

This week we will be using our knowledge of these features to plan our own newspaper reports about the cholera outbreak in Hutton Rudby!

Maths

Continuing with our topic of Geometry, we will be studying 3D shapes.

Are there any items in your home which are shaped like these 3D shapes? Try to gather all of the cube, cuboid, cylinder and sphere items in your home. What do the shapes have in common? Do they stack? Do they roll?

The objectives for this week are:

L.O. I can identify the properties of 3D shapes (faces, vertices, edges)

L.O. I can identify 2D shapes on 3D shapes e.g. circles on a cylinder.

History

Take a look at some of these pictures from the Hutton Rudby Local and District History Society.

What has changed in Hutton Rudby? What is the same?

How is life different now compared to these images?

What do you think the people would be saying in each of these images?
