BBC News School Report – Bury Grammar School Boys become reporters for the day!
On Thursday 16th March, Miss Davenport’s third year English class took part in the BBC Schools News Day, an exciting national event. The LRC was turned into a news room for the day and the boys arrived, complete with press passes, video equipment, cameras and clipboards to begin gathering news. Teams perused the day’s papers for ideas and these were then shared in our editorial meeting. Students spent the day carrying out interviews and producing written and spoken news. Articles ranged from the problem of sugary snacks in schools, to Donald Trump, to computer games reviews. It was a pressured but very successful day for all our young journalists.
