Fairy Tale News Reports

This week will will be making fairy tale news reports to add to our blog.


  1. You can make your movie using either  Lego Super Heroes Movie Maker. (free) or iMovie ($5.45)
  2. Decide which fairytale event you wish to cover.
  3. Listen to or watch a couple of news items on ABC news http://www.abc.net.au/news/abcnews24/  and discuss the style and contents of the news items with your partner.
  4. Write a script for your news item. It will need to answer the following questions:
  • Who?
  • What?
  • Where?
  • When?
  • Why?
  1. Have a rehearsal.
  2. Make any necessary changes to make your news item clearer or more dramatic.
  3. Record your video.
  4. Save your video to dropbox.


These work sheets might help you.

Today our 5/6’s competed in Hooptime. Our Oatlands’ kids did us proud. They cheered and supported each other on. Most teams had success and showed excellent sportsmanship. A big THANKS to Miss Arnold for organising everything 🙂
