“More than 30,000 pupils from around the UK are turning their classrooms into newsrooms for BBC News School Report’s tenth annual News Day.”
BBC News School Report Day is a big event in the MMS calendar. This year, twelve Year 7 children will write, film, edit and produce a news bulletin entirely from scratch on the day itself.
BBC News offer support materials and help to schools across the country – they run a live blog on the day offering suggestions for stories and downloadable graphics and audio files to help give the children’s work that professional edge. Hundreds of schools from all age phases choose to take part, year after year and Monkseaton Middle has been involved since the first event happened in 2006.
Mr Marron and Mr Jones will work with some of our most enthusiastic and talented students; but ultimately the children will be responsible for all the content, the ideas for the stories, the camera work, film editing, the writing and the presentation.
In true news-room style, the programme will be created entirely on the day and will feature a range of contributions from pupils and staff.
This year’s work will be available to view here (or via the link on the map at the BBC’s School Report website) form approximately 3.45 on Thursday, 10 March 2016.
