Media Students at Great Cornard Upper School have been very busy in their lesson this morning! They have had 100 minutes to produce a news report. The action started at 9:25 when students arrived to their lesson, were given their lanyards and badges, a team photo taken and given their brief which they had chosen the day before.
We had three newsteams in action, each group having a leader - Maisy, Edward and George. Alice and Matthew were the Anchors and there was also a separate film crew in the Interview room. For the first 20 minutes students prepared their group reports, then BBC Radio Suffolk arrived to interview for a live Radio feed at 10:15. We were all very nervous - as we had never spoken live on the Radio before - even me, their teacher!
Once BBC Radio Suffolk left, interviews for the newsreport were conducted and everything was rehearsed and finalised for 'going live' at 10:40. The students really enjoyed it and I am really pleased that everything went according to plan and we finished 5 minutes early! Two students, Zoe and Joe are currently editing the newsreport to meet the 2:00 pm deadline. Make sure you watch our final news report on "How trustworthy is the Internet"?
