Writing an Introduction

This week we started the process of writing news. We started with the intro paragraph. What does it include, the length and sentence structure.

This i found really interesting, the amount of information that needs to be contained in such a small word count.

The Who, When, Where, Why and What and How. The intention is that readers can gain the key point to the story at a glance. This gives them  the option on weather to carry on reading or move on to the next story.

The news then works in a pyramid style with the most important information earlier in the piece.
