BBC School Report 2018
On Thursday 15 March, the BBC Schools Report POP group took the day off timetable to create a report on a chosen news story. Prior to the lesson, they had all chosen their stories, and were prepared to find the information they needed. Mr Bruce and Mrs Bonner had also kindly taken most of the day off to help the girls with their reports.
The group met in Mrs Derrick’s old office at the start of the day, to discuss their stories they were doing, and plan the day ahead, over breakfast. They were given BBC lanyards, and cue cards, and looked very professional! Most of them started by gathering together information, and facts, and creating questionnaires, or some questions to interview people with. Majority of the group were filming their reports, apart from 2 groups, who chose to do a written report. At about 10am, most of the groups were already out, filming or getting information from students and teachers around the school.
A lot of the girls used their break time to film, or collect information, so most of them had a 20 minute break afterwards. After the break, the groups went out again to film, this time to collect the last bits of information, and then to film themselves presenting the report. The two groups doing the written reports sat down, and collected the information, and started writing the basics of their reports. The students had a few quick breaks in between here and lunch, so that they could re gather the group, or just to think of some new ideas for the reports.
At lunch, most people headed out to eat lunch with their friends, but a few came back early, as they wanted to finish the report, or to get a head start. After lunch, it was a full on, rush to get the reports ready to hand in at 3pm, and luckily, most of the groups made the deadline, but for those who didn’t, they had a chance to continue the reports the next day, in lunchtime, so they could get it finished.
Overall, the day was a huge success, and a great opportunity for the girls. They all thought that it was very interesting to see inside the life of a reporter, or journalist, and would definitely do this again! It was lots of fun, and they are very thankful to Mr Bruce and Mrs Bonner for organising the day, and making sure the girls’ reports were as best as they could have been!
