On Wednesday 6th March, Miss Farmer’s BBC Young Reporter club were broadcast journalists for the day. The group were working on various projects, which ranged from sports journalism, breaking news, weather reports and local news. Our local news saw us interviewing the cast and director of this week’s school production, Wizard of Oz. We interviewed Mr Marshall on his thoughts around a recent Instagram craze which saw 180,000 students, including some of our own Mossley Hollins students, voting for a later school start. We were also fortunate to have an interview with Shirley Howard, of Mossley Heritage centre, who gave our students an insight into life in Mossley in the mid 1900’s and how our town has changed over the years.
Well done to all students involved who worked professionally throughout the day to produce excellent broadcast journalism! Our reports can be viewed below, with a full round up of all reports on our BBC Young Reporter page.
