Year 7 become reporters for Journalism Day
On Trips Day, Year 7 developed their journalistic skills by working as busy news teams.
The day started with a lively drama workshop run by Ms Nicholls and two masterclasses on broadcast journalism techniques, led by Ms Chandler and Ms Rivers. After that, students worked in groups, eagerly embracing the challenge of creating their own news programmes inspired by the events in the play ‘Our Day Out’ by Willy Russell. They worked brilliantly as enthusiastic writers, directors, actors and journalists. Students then edited their footage to create their final news programme in time for the 3pm deadline. The day concluded with students sharing their work with their classes.
They had produced very creative, informative, and often very amusing, reports in a single day. Well done, all!
