First of all, they had to finish their first draft of their newspaper report, then edit and make improvements and finally type it up using Word. They have then considered how to improve the presentation: using columns, justifying the writing, changing fonts, adding images and text boxes. The nearly-finished pieces are looking fantastic! Well done Neve and Tom for working so hard on this.
