The Michael Faraday Burnet News Club recently welcomed some of the professional journalists behind the project into our school. Our guests were keen to know more about our work after winning the Thought Leader section on social housing.
Each week class teacher Leanne helps to train a selection of Year 5 and Year 6 students with their journalism skills. We follow a learning programme put in place by the Burnet News Club.
Online video, audio and written submissions are shared. Feedback then comes from the team of professional journalists. Our contribution to the social housing debate was considered to be outstanding.
Some of the Michael Faraday students were interviews by our guests. Leanne was also asked about the progress of the pupils as part of the programme. The next topic that we will be researching is the current situation in Catalonia.
