This year, Year 8 students at Perins students took part in BBC School Report for the first time. This gave them the opportunity to experience what it is like to research, create and edit their own news broadcasts on topics that interest them.
In preparation for News Day on the 15th March, some of the students researched some of the exciting events that have been going on around the school this term, such as ‘The £1 Challenge’ and the school production of Beauty and the Beast. Others have chosen to focus on global issues, such as gun control in America.
On News Day, students worked hard throughout the day to pull together professional news broadcasts. They worked together well in their teams and produced some fantastic results. Well done to all involved.
