BBC School Report 2018
Diss High School
On Thursday 15th March, 14 budding journalists in year 9 took on the challenge of participating in BBC School Report’s Live News Day.
After a news briefing first thing, students separated into small groups to produce their own television news reports, all of which needed to be edited and complete by the BBC’s 2pm deadline.
Students demonstrated true grit and determination during this fast-paced working day, showing excellent communication and teamwork skills.
Final news reports included:
- The Snapchat update and people’s opinions of this;
- An investigation into people’s experiences of Apple slowing down older models of their phones;
- Reactions to a school banning the latest ‘Meet me at McDonald’s’ haircut;
- Star Wars: an adult or a children’s film;
- Stephen Hawking: a tribute.
