Listening and re-telling

Today Room 13 listened to the BBC World News for Schools podcast.
We are practising our listening skills and then re-telling the news story in our own words using the 5W’s, Who, What, Where, When and Why.
Here is today’s story about a man who fell 300 metres off a mountain in Scotland. Let’s see if we got all the W’s.
Class recount:

Adam Potter, a scottish man, survived a 300 meter fall off a mountain and he still wants to keep climbing.He  survived a 300 meter fall but only had a few cuts and  no broken bones.He fell off a mountain in Scotland near Ben Nevis.
in February. Adam Potter tumbled  and  slipped off  the mountain and still  survived.   It  didn’t turn him off climbing.

  1. I am thrilled you are listening to the BBC World News for Schools. I listen to the BBC World Service every day and think it is the best. Your recount told me all the important parts of that news story really well. Abi
