On Thursday 12th March, ten students took part in creating a video for the annual BBC Young Reporter Festival. Everyone took part in finding news and then writing, filming and editing the broadcast. It was a very enjoyable and an educational experience for all. Everyone worked their hardest to get the video finished in time, and we couldn’t have done it without each other. We travelled around school for interviews, filmed multiple takes and collaborated together to get the final ideas onto video. Pupil Anish said, “The BBC Reporter day gave me the excellent opportunity to develop my journalism and public speaking skills.” It was a really busy and challenging day for all involved.
