REPORTERS AT THE READY!
We had a fantastic day of journalism training for 28 pupils from 6 primary schools who attended an English and Journalism workshop run by Mr Boulton-Lear. The day involved understanding what makes the news and how news stories are found, gathered and written.
The pupils worked in small teams to research a news story, interview teachers, take photographs and write up their stories. They worked really hard to meet their deadlines and the feedback from the primary teachers was that they thoroughly enjoyed the day. The schools involved were: Croft, Brompton-on-Swale, Barton, Ravensworth, North & South Cowton and Trinity Academy Richmond. We are looking forward to welcoming students from Hunton & Arrathorne, Bolton-on-Swale Kirkby Fleetham, East Cowton and Le Cateau for a second workshop.
