Today's English activity is all about fact vs opinion.


We looked closely at this before school closed when reading different newspaper's ideas about what a refugee was. 


Facts can be supported by evidence whereas opinions are based on thoughts and feelings.


When we looked at the newspapers, there were lots of facts with numbers and proof and lots of opinions with people discussing their own thoughts.



  • Facts are definitely true.

  • They can be backed up with evidence.

For example: The Prime Minister is giving a speech.


  • Your opinion is how you feel or what you think about something.

  • Other people might think differently or have a different opinion.

For example: Having a teenager as Prime Minister is a terrible idea.
