In this pack, the child is asked to read Anya’s report for the T.V. broadcast ‘Save Our Tree’. They should read the different points of view of people who want to stop the tree being chopped down and then, they should add their own viewpoint. Next, they should use the prompt to write their own newspaper article. After this, the child should write a letter to the council.
