The school has teamed up with BBC School Report to keep you informed of all things Kingsmeadow following the Christmas break.
The Report will include everything from sports news, to debates on the big issues in school and in the community. Students will also recreate stories to fit the Kingsmeadow angle from regional, national and international sources.
A team of Key Stage 3 reporters have been working with materials created and sent by the BBC in order to sharpen journalistic skill and knowhow and a member of the BBC’s production team is expected in the near future to add even more to the skillsets already present.
Some of the material created may appear on the BBC’s own website, and even live on the BBC news channel, as part of the School Report takeover day in March 2018.
Tommy, a year 7 School Reporter, said this of the opportunity to take part: “It seems like a very good way to get students involved in the community.”
Emilia, a School Reporter also in year 7 said: I think the BBC is a great idea to advance a young person’s mindset; I am very glad to be a part of this project.”
Mr Lennox, who is overseeing the project, said: “The School Report is ideal opportunity, not only to improve students’ communication skills and skills in literacy, but it is also a great opportunity for those who may want to join the project in later years to see what can be achieved by this year’s reporters.”
If you know of any stories, or interesting topics, the School Report team could research, seek out one of our student reporters or speak to Mr Lennox in the English department.
