In The School Publication, pupils have been developing their skills as journalists. This term, they have twice been out of the classroom as a team to report on two events in school: the Year 8 dress rehearsal for Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice and the primary school’s Children in Need fundraising day. They learned interview techniques and how to take notes to use to write an article. This week, we will have a guest in from the BBC to help develop their journalistic skills further.

Their first publication is available in all tutor rooms, from the journalists themselves, or from Mr Rowley and Ms Kasadi. Their next publication will go to press in the last week of term. It will be the best one yet!
