Literacy support 

This week, from Tuesday until Friday, we’d like you to have a go at writing your own newspaper report about a sporting event or achievement.

Some ideas to inspire you might be:

  • England winning the 1966 World Cup;
  • Alistair Brownlee supporting his brother over the finishing line at the World Triathlon Series;
  • Usain Bolt breaking the 100m world record;
  • ‘Super Saturday’ at the 2012 Olympics;
  • A football match that you have played in or watched;
  • Any other sporting event that you have competed in or been to watch
  • A past Sports day at school;
  • You may even be really creative and set up a miniature sporting event in your back garden and choose to write a report on this.

Remember that within your report you should aim to write about the following:

  • The build-up to the event. How did the competitor/s feel? How did the spectators feel? Was it expected to be a key moment in history?
  • The day of the event. What happened? Did everything go to plan? Why was it such a fantastic achievement?
  • Quotes from people – how did the competitor feel? What was the reaction of other people?
  • What does the event mean for the future? Are there any lessons to be learnt?
