Pupils get a taste of the newsroom

Redditch Editorial 30th Apr, 2015 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

BIRCHENSALE pupils swapped the classroom for the newsroom as part of a journalism day.

Year 6, 7, and 8 students reported on local and national news as part of the BBC School News Report Day.

They focused on the upcoming elections by researching and interviewing candidates.

Laura Ridgewell, acting head of English, said: “The day was a huge success and though busy, it helped them see what it would be like in a real newsroom.”
