BBC School News Report
Every Thursday, since October, students from SHSG have been working on reports for the BBC School News Report. Along the way we have been picking up skills in researching, filming, editing, interviewing and so much more from the wonderful expertise of Ola and Leila in Year 13.
On Thursday 10th March (Newsday) Michael Millham, apprentice broadcast engineer for the BBC came in to help us finalise our reports.
We worked in separate groups and each chose a topic to base our day on. We gathered information via interviewing and researching information about each topic. Some of us had people brought in and we were filmed talking about a topic. The topics are: Pi day, local area news, Hairspray, University opinions, Wallasea Island. We enjoyed learning how to film and edit our footage. Moreover, we loved doing the interviews. The day was an incredible experience for us to get an insight on what goes on behind the scenes in a BBC News Report.
"The time went so fast because we had so much to do!"
"It was very satisfying to see the end result. We loved having the
responsibility to edit our own footage!"
