On Thursday 10th March 2016 our BBC School Report Teams spent the day being BBC Journalists and putting together reports about stories that really mattered to us. 

There were 6 news groups: Rio 2016, Childhood Obesity, Social Media, Homelessness, Holiday Prices and Fines, and the Zika Virus: A Disease of Misery.

It was a fantastic experience for our budding journalists who got to brainstorm ideas, do research, organise interviews and then put the whole piece together. You can see their work below:

 

Holiday Prices and Fines - written report 
 

Zika Virus: A Disease of Misery - written report

 

During our preparation a BBC reporter came in to mentor us.
