BBC School Report
Students from this school will be making the news for real in March 2014 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later. Later this year we'll take part in a practice day.

News Day - 15th March 2012
School Report Team (10W Media Students) 
BBC Radio Suffolk Interview 
How trustworthy is the internet? - TV Report 
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"?
