This year, students from Aldermn White have been taking part in the BBC School Report, where young people across the UK get the chance to report on their interests and make their own news reports for a real audience. Throughout the year, the reporters set up interviews and write articles about their own interests, local news, current affairs, and anything else they feel is newsworthy.
Using ideas and materials from the School Report website and with support from BBC staff and partners, our teachers help students develop their reporting skills; producing written articles, photographs, and video reports.
In March, schools across the country take part in the annual School Report Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and written news reports on a range of subjects and interests and publishing them online. The content is updated throughout the day, and the BBC provide links and an interactive map of all the schools taking part.
