In Bexleyheath Academy, the Year 8 English class - 8wn/En1 - have been lucky enough to participate in the BBC School Report 2017. We have been given one day a week (Friday) to discuss worldwide news with our peers and some staff. Doing this exciting project, it will help us improve listening, speaking and writing skills. It will also improve our filming skills and make us more confident with the camera.
The BBC school report is a project that runs for 12 weeks, allowing students to be real reporters reporting on real life issues.
Many times before, 8wn/En1 have been to computer room to research and share the headlines we could make into articles for the School Report.
The BBC School Report website, has given lots of tips and tricks on how to create the best articles and become secure with how to put our knowledge into the reports. Our class teacher, Miss Selby, has been helping us from the start of our project and will be until the end.
Be on the lookout for more articles discussing issues about depression, teen health, what our principal thinks of the new US president and more!
Thank you for taking the time to read our introductory paragraphs and make sure you check out our page for new reports and stories on the latest news.
