Writing a news story

Think about something that has happened to you recently that you can write a news story about.

Answer these questions as you write the most important information about your news story.

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Why?
  • How?

Use short, simple sentences and short paragraphs. Don’t forget to include a headline for your news story.
