A team of Year 8 students from Bosworth Academy helped to make the news on 16 March 2017 by taking part in the BBC School Report News Day.

The day started with an editorial meeting where the students divided themselves into small sub-teams and decided which stories to report on.  They then planned questions to ask and the media footage they wanted to collect and worked hard to make their reports.  These reports were edited both into written format for the website and as videos to be uploaded to YouTube on our Bosworth Academy Project Based Learning Channel.

The final part of the day was spent recording the links for the full news bulletin and putting it all together.  The day was a great success and can be summed up by this student evaluation of the day,

The day was great fun and I really think I improved my skills in speaking in front of people and conducting interviews I would recommend doing this to anyone who gets the opportunity and would jump at the chance to have another go at it.”

Well done to our Y8 reporting team of Alecia, Alice, Amy, Anya, Arjun, Chris, Corey, Daniel, Eric, Imarnie, Jack, Jessica, Kamilla, Kirsten and Rebecca.
