Year 5 reporters @ The Guardian

Year 5 children travelled by train up to London to spend the day as reporters for The Guardian newspaper.

They had the opportunity to write and edit stories coming hot off the wire, for example Prince Philip retiring and a Komodo dragon attack. Using the same software the pros would use, children worked in pairs to recreate the day's top stories, including finding pictures, quotes and writing catchy headlines to draw the reader in. It was a fantastic day and the class have come back to school inspired to write more news stories.
