It is national newspaper week in Finland this week. As part of the week’s activities English Class third graders made a field trip to the offices of our local newspaper, Satakunnan Kansa. There pupils learned how current events and breaking stories find their way into print. They learned about the important building blocks of writing a good news article by asking the basics: who, where, what, when, why and how?
This week all of the English Classes will be participating in various activities related to newspapers as part of their Finnish lessons. (Click the picture above to read the text more easily.)
