WALT integrate speech into a newspaper report.

Today's lesson is all about speech. Speech is a vital part of any newspaper report as it gives key information about events that have happened from eye witnesses and people who were there or involved. Use the documents below to have a go at punctuating either direct or reported speech ready for your newspaper report writing later this week! 

Unfortunately, the video on punctuating direct speech needed to be split into two parts for uploading. Please watch part 1 before part 2 otherwise it won't make too much sense!
