Design your own school newspaper
Published on May 21, 2013
The News Academy’s exciting digital publishing platform enables you to design your own newspaper, providing teachers with an innovative bespoke e-learning resource to raise standards in KS2, KS3 and KS4. Our website directly enhances and supports literacy lessons by engaging students in creative writing in an exciting way.
Become a journalist in your school
Pupils get a great sense of achievement from designing their own newspapers and seeing their work in print. It directly engages boys in literacy as it gives them a real sense of purpose for writing in a structured way.
The easy to use classroom friendly system allows pupils to write articles of different sizes, design their pages and then publish their newspaper. Both single page spreads and multi-page spreads are available. The students also have a choice of different page designs to choose from. They can edit their articles as they go along, write headlines and upload their own photographs.
Exciting home work projects
Pupils can work individually, in small groups or in classes to create and design their own newspaper. Our system can also be used by pupils in their own home as part of homework tasks and their completed work can be included in their work for their SATs.
