Bulletin project takes the biscuit
School Reporters in Reading are putting together an entire TV bulletin - complete with news, sport, weather, entertainment and a story about a chef with a biscuit obsession.

In football, Reading have a big match at the weekend against Liverpool, so the reporters from Theale Green Community School are previewing this, as well as the St Patrick's Day rugby match when Reading will play London Irish.

Also, they are featuring the story that the school will do a mile walk around the school for Sport Relief.

The main national story is about the budget increase in alcohol duty. The reporters have been interviewing pub landlords about how it will affect their business.

In local news, the school has just received a grant to become a science and technology specialist school (adding to their media and arts status) and pupils interviewed the science teacher about how things will change.

In entertainment news, students are looking ahead to new TV show I'll Do Anything, and talking to the drama teacher about the challenges involved in playing the characters Oliver and Nancy in a musical production of Oliver!.

Also the pupils are reporting on whether reality/entertainment programmes such as I'll Do Anything have had their day.

Their "and finally" story is about a chef who just eats biscuits and includes an interview with the school's food science teacher.
