Unfortunately the outside providers who normally run Newspaper Day for Year 6 didn’t turn up! Instead we decided to still run the day ourselves using all the knowledge the children have gained from reading War Horse.
What a fantastic job they did! All four groups found a way of working together, they had to make compromises and had quite a few discussions before they settled into their roles.
Each group was allowed a Chrome book to research extra facts and study photographs.
At the end of the day we asked Mr Isherwood to come and judge each front page. He read them thoroughly, whilst the class waited anxiously, and made valid points about them all.
