News report homework reminder!

Hi 6 Red! 


Just a a quick reminder of the homework which myself and Mrs Janjua set. This is to watch one short news clip over the weekend (this can be on the television or even off YouTube) and comment on here with 5 features that you saw, which link to what we have been learning about in English. 


Top comments will also contain a brief summary about what the report was about and how the techniques you saw made the news report effective! 


REMINDER: please do have a lovely weekend too and we cannot wait to hear all about it on Monday! 😊

  1. I whatched BBC news about this young footballer who was peter was a professional footballer I saw the BBC news acters were very confident and they didn’t speak fast you could hear there voices very well and the interviewee knew what she was going to say in a good way they didn’t stand and fidget they stood really coftably

  2. I watched Newsround on the CBBC website.The news was very good because they used these features:
    .A loud voice.
    .No noise in the background.
    .There faces and voice had expression.
    .They had eye contact with the camera.
    .They were confident as they spoke.

    I will try my best to use these features in class when we are doing verbal work.

  3. on bcc news they have a clear vioce and lots of question
    a background of the sence and showing the whole thing
    they introduced themself and the interviewee.
    their are fact about what happen.
    they show a 360 degree round and show all of the place

  4. I have wached bbc news in the report the person was very clear when talking it was great because the person in the video had great posture there was no distractions.
    They gave as much facts as they could they had eye contact with their audience they have used good vocabulary as well they gave evidence for everything they said.
    They focused on the camer also they had expression when talking.

  5. I watched BBC news and the first thing I saw was they were serious and they weren’t messing around or hiding and when it came to the speaking they were serious.The things five things I saw were…

    The interviewer was speaking clear to the interviewee so the interviewee understands what he is saying and the interviewee spoke clearly to.
    They cared for other people like what they had to show if someone was getting bullied they weren’t spiteful about it they were serious and cared for that person.
    It has a catchy headline to make the audience interested and watch to see what’s going on around the world.
    The videos that they show are true and not fake so people can help these people or countries with support.
    They had used good vocabulary instead of little baby words like hurt instead they used painful or harming.

  6. I watched a news report and have read one in the local magazine. I chose this report because the person in the video was very confident and there are many more reasons why they made the news even more better than it already was.

    reasons why it was great:
    1) The person in the video had a great posture.

    2) They were very confident when speaking and nothing seem to distract them and you could only here their voice speaking instead of someone else’s voice.

    3) They used loads of images to give evidence in the report so that the viewers at home can tell that what there presenting or telling us is real.

    4) They have loads of strong and powerful vocabulary and also some very good use of journalistic vocabulary like sources claim…
    and also they had loads of facts and statistics showing how may of the percentage of people in Las Vegas was killed or injured.

    5)The person speaking had loads of facts and opinions from other people and how they felt about this attack and how it has effected them as a person.

    6)In the news report online they had a bold,catchy heading which I think was to attract the reader to come ans find out what happened and why???.

    7)Last but not least they had a ton of expressions to express how they felt about what happened and they had tons of expressions when speaking which made their words clear and what they were going to speak.

  10. I watched a interview when there was a new playground built in California. The features included a clear voice. Clear questions and good responses.The interviewer had to ask clear questions because to understand the interviewees point of view.They need a clear voice so that the audience and intervewee understand what there questions is or response.There needed to have a good response because the audience need to know information.
