BBC News School Report 2016

On Thursday 10th March 2016, thousands of schools across the country took part in a day of news gathering and news reporting. Lyndon was one of them. The aim: to research and produce local, national and international news items whilst working to a 2pm deadline. A big ask! But 24 of our dedicated Year 7 students were more than up to the task. The results, displayed below, were uploaded and linked to the BBC website. Using English and Media skills, they worked with as a team, employing a professional journalistic approach.

We think the resulting work is fantastic and we hope you enjoy them too!
