Wyvern students had a great opportunity to become news reporters for the day earlier this term as part of the annual BBC School Report initiative.
After an early start to look at the key topics making the headlines, students spent the day reporting and writing on stories ranging from global news and politics, to entertainment and sport. They demonstrated superb journalistic skills throughout the day, including their ability to research in depth and write in an appropriate form and style. By the final deadline, the stories written were compiled and shared on an excellent website constructed by GCSE IT students. In addition, Media students recorded and edited a fantastic BBC TV news report on mental health and how Wyvern College supports students tackling issues regarding their own mental health and well-being. Teachers were also on hand to offer their views on hot topics in society, including Brexit and global politics.
Oliver Dickinson, English and Media Teacher, commented, “I would like to thank the staff for giving up their time to support this day and contributing towards what was a worthwhile experience for all the students taking part.”
