Newspaper/E-Mail Project

Outline of the project:

All thirteen DASP First schools are involved in the project. The aim of the project is to promote the use of e-mail between DASP schools and to gain some Desk Top Publishing skills.


Each half term, two schools produce a newspaper in either Word or Publisher. The DASP schools are divided into 2 groups and each school within a group contributes to the current newspaper of that particular half term from within that group. The contributions are made by children, using e-mail. The e-mails are kept in Easy Mail and copied and pasted from there, or saved to disk. The paper is produced within one day and no more.
