I write for my school newspaper

Press Packer Sally
Press Packer Sally wants to be a journalist and she has just helped her school launch a newspaper.

Here's her story.

"I review books for my school newspaper. The newspaper is called The Roar. We gave it that name because our school logo is of a lion.

In the first edition of the newspaper, we reviewed author Jacqueline Wilson.

We had fun rating all of her brilliant books. We also mentioned some of her new books which are coming out soon.

I really enjoy writing reviews because it's nice knowing that my friends will be reading what I think about books and their authors.

I find writing relaxing. There are always lots of things to write about.

We are going to feature a different author in each edition. I hope to write about JK Rowling, Dick King-Smith, Philip Pullman and lots of other great authors who write books which I love reading.

Writing for the school newspaper is also a great way to make new friends. Other children who are working on the school newspaper are doing fashion, sport and lots more.

I'm really looking forward to the next edition."

Sally, 10, Bedfordshire
