BBC School News Report
Today is BBC School Report day. A fantastic opportunity for our pupils to make their own news reports for a real audience.
This year, boys in Year 9, with the aid of voiceovers from Year 11 pupils, has seen the team produce a report about the resurgence of the ‘Rubik’s cube’.
Final filming has taken place over the last few days and the video has now been carefully edited into a concise report. In the later stages voiceover audio was recorded and added along, with the introductory graphics supplied by the BBC.
