On 10th March 2016, the students of 9REN1 participated in the BBC School Report Day. The class had an exciting time, putting together their own news report and interviewing the manager of KC Communications who talked about opportunities for young students in 2017 and what the City of Culture means to Hull. Students developed their journalistic skills researching new stories; creating scripts and questions; editing the final report and analysing student survey data – all very important!
In addition, two students from the academy, Ellie Brown and Harvey Medlicott-Revell, were invited to spend the day at BBC Humberside where they interviewed Helen Boaden, Head of BBC England and Director of Radio. Overall, it was a fantastic, enriching experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by all the students involved.
