Year 3

Lesson 3 Great template!

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

Learners will be introduced to the terms 'templates', 'orientation', and 'placeholders' within desktop publishing software. The learners will create their own magazine template, which they will add content to during the next lesson. This lesson has been designed on a laptop using Adobe Spark and this is reflected in the screenshots and videos. Teachers may decide to use the Adobe Spark app, or other software such as Canva or Microsoft Publisher.
