Pupils report the news
CLASSROOMS were turned into busy newsrooms for the day when students became TV news reporters.
Pupils at Nailsea School and Gordano School in Portishead teamed up with pupils from 700 other schools across the UK to make the news for the BBC’s School Report News Day.
They decided which stories their school should report and their work was featured on BBC news programmes throughout the day.
In Nailsea, four year eight students filmed a story reporting on North Somerset Athletics Club’s bid for its own purpose-built facilities.
About 28 pupils took part in the project, researching stories, interviewing people and shooting footage around the school before using its purpose built studio to film their pieces to camera in front of a green screen.

At Gordano School, year seven students, with the help of sixth form mentors, worked hard training to be top journalists, carrying out interviews and producing reports in preparation for the big news day.
