Highbank Primary and Nursery School


This week we would like you to write a news report about something that has happened at home, the coronavirus or something completely fictional e.g. a dinosaur was stuck in a tree!


You will need to use formal language so think about your audience and don't use contractions. We would also like you to include a piece of direct speech and indirect speech.


Direct speech example: "I like going to school," she said.

Indirect speech example: She said that she liked going to school.


We would love to see your writing when you've finished so please either tweet it to us or email it.
