Year 7 and the BBC School Report

BBC School Report

New College Worcester Year 7 have been busy compiling a news report for BBC News School Report, which is really exciting as it is the first time for a while that NCW has been involved in this high profile project.

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.

Using lesson plans and materials from the BBC website, and with support from BBC staff and partners Ebenezer, Ryley, Sydney, Chelsea, Asher, Abi, Niamh and Ilja under the guidance of Mrs Holyoak are developing their journalistic skills to become School Reporters, creating video, audio and text-based news reports.

They have chosen to focus their news story around sport for children and young people with visual impairments and are very passionate about raising awareness. They interviewed VI Footballer Will Norman, and Paralympic Swimmer Becky Redfern along with the Head of PE at NCW, Mrs Price.
