Young reporters take on BBC project

NINE students from The Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar joined with schools across the UK for the BBC News School Report Day.

The young reporters’ aim was to engage 11-14 year olds in the news.

Over previous months pupils were training to be top journalists, filming interviews and producing reports.

On the day, they filmed a feature on the forthcoming royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, reported on how computers have changed and ran film reviews. The team were assisted by students from year 11 and sixth form.

Ellie Roylance , teachers, said: “Our students worked really hard to create interesting stories. This was a wonderful experience for them.”
