  6. We have learnt all about newspapers recounts! To do this we had to use key features in a newspaper recount such as 5ws, conjunctions, opinions and facts. 5ws is a trick making sure you explain and written about everything in the introduction. These are when, what, where, who and why. When is showing what time it happened, what is the main subject, who is the people involved in this, why is why did this happen and where what place did it happen. We used all of the 5ws to create our introduction of the play ground.
    Another writer trick is the opinions used in the recount. Opinions are really good, especially when you have an opinion of one of the people who was involved in this. This is because you get to see one of the main people in the recount,who is involved, give their own perspective about this. We also have been looking at the purpose, audience and impact on the reader.The purpose talks about the main point of this text, the audience is the people who should be reading this text and finally, the impact on the reader is the effect and emotion the reader has when reading this. Facts are true made up stuff that backs up your opinion with evidence. Conjunctions are used to explain in further detail but also to compare both sides of the argument.
