What do journalists do?

Journalists do many different things at work. Here is an idea of some of the things journalists do each day. Before they write anything, journalists must leave the office and ask people lots of questions they need to find out information for their stories first.

They often take a tape recorder with so they don't forget the information they've heard. Then they go back to their office and write their stories very on the computer. News stories are often short and give the important information about things that just happened. They often work with photographers take pictures which help to tell the stories.

When they have written their stories, journalists check that they haven't made mistakes at all. They must be sure that is correct before the stories go into the newspaper. It isn't easy to be a journalist but it's boring! 

Read the story. Write some words to complete the sentences about the story. You can use 1, 2, 3 or 4 words.

Emma's house was on top of a hill, and it had an amazing view of the woods below. There was also a stream running down to the bottom of the hill and a beautiful stone bridge over it.

Aunt Emma, who is a photographer, took out her camera and said, "Come on, Helen. Let's go and take some photos. The magazine I work for needs some pictures of caves."

Helen put on her trainers and hurried down the hill after Emma. She was very excited and chatted with her aunt as they walked. "Your job sounds so interesting, Aunt Emma! Who decides what photos you should take?" Her aunt smiled and said, "The journalist who writes the story. This time, Mr Roberts is writing about the animals that live in caves."

They found the first cave after an hour and stopped. "Wait here, Helen. I'm going inside to see if it's safe first." Helen looked around as she waited at the entrance. She decided to collect some flowers for her aunt and started walking away. She was looking at a beautiful red plant behind a huge tree when she suddenly heard her aunt shouting. "Helen! Helen! Where are you?" Helen jumped up and ran back to the cave. Her aunt explained that walking around in a forest can be dangerous. "I'm sorry, Aunt Emma. I know I shouldn't walk by myself here. I won't do it again."
