A class of Yarborough Academy students from year nine took part in the BBC School Report.
Divided into small teams, each created a report on a national event or created local news, all to a strict deadline, by which they had to make sure all their articles were uploaded to the school website and linked to the BBC News School Report webpage.
The reports were created in different formats such as videos, audio interviews and written reports.
And the stories ranged from reporting on local wind turbines, flooding and the possible closure of local facilities, to articles on school news such as understanding the reasons for the recent teacher strikes and showcasing student’s achievements, as well as articles about issues such as obesity.
Students prepared for the News Day over several weeks during their English lessons and edited the films and audio interviews on the day.
Working under pressure to meet their deadline, the students successfully created a professional news report which can be found on the school’s website - www.caistoryarboroughacademy.org.uk - and it is also linked to the BBC News School Webpage.
