Welcome to Week 4 of your Year 4 Literacy Home Learning!


This week, we are writing a newspaper article about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the volcano within painstaking reach of the Roman city of Pompeii.


Using the good version, the resources below and any other research you have carried out, write your own version of the newspaper article, ensuring you focus on: the correct layout of a newspaper, only including certain information in each paragraph, correctly punctuating speech if you want to include any quotes and using subordinate clauses to open sentences in interesting ways that hook the reader. 


The PowerPoint will talk you through how to plan, write and edit your writing each day. There are screenshots included of the paragraph that you are aiming to write each day.

When the 'whiteboards' are mentioned, if you have your own whiteboard - great! If not, use any paper you have :).
