As part of our focus on alternative Fairy tales we have been looking at how the events would be reported in today's 24 hour rolling news broadcasts. We discussed a range of fairy tales and what the main key events of these were.
We then had a demonstration of the Breaking News application on Classtools. Mr Roberts modeled and example of a main event from a tale and showed how to fill in the page. We focused on having short, concise and snappy headlines and a description with more information and alliterative features. We also discussed using appropriate images linked to the story.
We then split up into partners and used our iPads to have a go at making Breaking News stories from our own chosen fairy tales.
Here are some of our efforts.
