The end of Macbeth!

It’s the end of the term and the end of Macbeth!  We’ve worked extremely hard to produce high-quality news reports based on the battle at the end of the play.  Our news reports needed to include the following features:

  • a catchy headline and informative sub-heading
  • an opening paragraph including the 5Ws (who, what, when, where and why)
  • a recount of important events written in the past tense
  • quotes (written in both direct speech and reported speech)
  • use of formal language for the report with contrasting informal language for the direct quotes
  • use of the passive voice
  • a closing paragraph (written in the present or future tense) to bring things up to date

Here are a few examples for you to enjoy:
