BBC School Reporters
Broadcasters of the future at Cheadle Hulme School stepped out of the classroom and into the newsroom when they took part in the BBC School Report News Day.
Budding News Anchors, Editors, Camera Operators and Technicians from Years 7, 8 and 9 embraced the day-long project, from researching the day’s national and local news all the way through to creating their very own news report, complete with interviews, archive footage and weather reports.
Kicking-off with the big story of the day, the Budget, students also covered local School events such as World Food Day and an Inter-House Music Competition and even managed to catch Head, Lucy Pearson for an exclusive interview.
Students researched and produced their report using specialist cameras, sound equipment and iPads, working to a tight deadline to upload their work to the School’s website by the end of the day.
BBC School Report gives 11-16 year-old students across the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. Using lesson plans and materials provided by the BBC and with support from BBC staff and partners, schools help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
