School Reporters meet Rolf Harris
By Lauren
Patcham High School, Brighton

On Thursday 13 March our school are going live on the BBC, reporting the news from around the country and what is going on local to us.

Over the past few weeks we have been learning how to report the news with Miss Pease.

In ICT lessons we have been watching videos from Huw Edwards and looking at what makes a good report.

We have even had a tutorial with a journalist where he told us all about being a reporter.

We now read the newspapers and online news at school and at home to keep up with what is going on.

We have also been practicing interviewing people. Today Jess and Hannah interview the Educational Welfare Officer for Brighton and Hove about a new attendance competition she is launching across the city next week.

Last week Megan and Celine had a brilliant chance to interview Rolf Harris, who was in the school for one day only filming for a new BBC programme called Made in England.

Rolf spoke to five extremely talented and fortunate students from Year 10 who had produced some really thought-provoking and original pieces of art.

Celine said after the experience: "It was great to have the opportunity to see Rolf Harris but it was very nerve-wracking."

There are further interviews lined up and we will reveal all on our website on News Day.

Miss Pease has also put on a club, which is only for us BBC News School Reporters.

It's where we can edit our films, practice interviewing people, think of ideas of how we can publish our reports, write up our stories and learn lots more on how to present the news.

We have only recently started on the project and have not done a practice News Day but we have all worked really hard and are looking forward to making the news for real.
