Working together for success and happiness


L.I. - Write a news report about the second trial       


Today you will become reporters for the Daily Prophet. You have been asked to write a report on the second trial of the Triwizard Tournament.


Take a look at the Press Release document below. This is a common way for organisers of events to encourage accurate reporting. Look at the information and then decide on a format for your notes – timeline, list, boxes etc.


Watch the following video clips, making notes as you watch. Pause the videos at regular intervals to allow time for your notetaking.

Review your notes and begin to write a news report, think about the layout, structure and language and including quotes. You might choose to write a fair and balanced report or take a biased approach - are you rooting for a particular character?


This can be handwritten but, if you would like to create your report on a computer, you can experiment with formatting such as columns, font size and inserting images and develop and edit as you go.


We can't wait to see your finished reports.laugh
