Writing Task 1

Read the article and have a go at the comprehension questions (This doesn't need to be a writing task, treat it more as a fun quiz - you could even compete against the adult who might be helping you).


If you were Winston Churchill on this day in history, what might you have put into the speech you gave at 3pm from the Balcony of Buckingham Palace? Write his speech that was broadcast to the nation to mark the end of war in Europe. Churchill’s real speech is attached, use it to identify the right things to talk about (but be careful not to copy from it).


Challenge: Use some rhetorical questions
This article is (as you will read) not from this year. If a new article is published in this weekend's magazine, I will add it to this page but the work asked of you will not change.
