Learning Without Limits

BBC School Report 2019

Some of our students have participated in the national BBC Young Reporters day. They were involved in a series of challenging activities and tasks designed to give them the experience of being a journalist.

They challenged the concept of fake news and by using the BBC ireporter app, experienced first- hand what it is like to work under pressure, to have to make snap decisions and to work to deadlines.

Armed with all this new knowledge they were then tasked with researching a news topic of their choice and creating a news item for a radio podcast, which, as you will hear had a very successful outcome.
