Amery Hill students turn reporters for the day

Amery Hill students turn reporters for the day

Amery Hill School hosted its fourth annual BBC School Report event this month, with 30 students experiencing what it is like to be a journalist for the day. The students worked in small groups and had the chance to research some interesting topics as well as learn the techniques of constructing and conducting a good interview. The reports covered a variety of topics, from the serious issues of a lack of diversity in the media and stereotypes about specific groups of people, to a more humorous representation of Donald Trump and his leadership style.  Speaking about the day, student reporter Alisha Frost said “For the fourth year in a row, this exciting day was planned and led by Mrs Winch, Head of Media Studies. To give us a real feel for what it would be like to work for a newspaper, live BBC news reports were actively displayed during the time, adding to the experience.” Students had the chance to develop their journalism skills, carrying out research, interviews and filming during the course of the day. Alisha added, “It was a fun day filled with exciting experiences for all!  On a personal note, I feel privileged to have taken part in this amazing opportunity for three years in a row and hope it continues for many more years to come.” Many of the students are core members of the school’s reporting team and have been instrumental in launching the student newspaper, ‘The Amery Quill’. We are looking forward to the next edition of their thought-provoking newspaper which will feature their articles and interviews from the BBC School Report Day.
