Today we will look at writing the opening of a newspaper article. 


When? Who? What? Why? Where? openers

My favourite paragraph in a newspaper report is the first one. It's clever because it tells you the whole story without you having to read it all. It uses the 5 W’s above to do this.


Last night, (when) local farmer Barry Bartlett, (who) 46 years old, received the shock of his life (what) when he discovered an alien spaceship landing (why) in one of his wheat fields (where).


How else could the alien have surprised a local person? Maybe it was found snooping around in a garage or maybe it was seen in a park or it arrived at school?


For example: 

Yesterday, local shopkeeper Ada Rudge, 34 years old, received the shock of her life when she found a green, slimy alien eating tinned hotdogs at the back of her shop.


Now you try using the 5 Ws to write a new paragraph about the alien's mischief. Remember to tell me when, who, what, why and where. Use the example above to help you.
