Journalist on Assignment! (Vitually 'meet' an environmental campaigner and write a short newspaper article)

Newspaper articles are a type of Information Text. This means that they are only allowed to include things that are true and have happened. Journalists have to be very careful that they are not making up extra details to make a story more interesting!


The Newspaper wants to publish some more stories next week in the 'Meet the campaigners' section of the page. You are going on assignment to research facts to write an article on this topic! Chose the campaign below that you are most interested in covering then click on the link below to be taken on location to the Newsround Website. Once you have got all the information you need write an article (a short paragraph for the newspaper) on your story. You can only use facts from the video in your work - no making up stories that aren't true! Don't forget to pick up some Miss Coleman punctuation points for using as many different pieces of punctuation in your work as possible.
