Junior Journalists

Year 5 pupils get a chance to write their own newspaper

We were delighted to welcome Y5 students from CKJS and Glenfall schools on Wednesday 2nd May.

The students worked in the school library all day researching news stories and producing their own articles to go into their very own newspaper which they named 'Junior Journalist.'

They started the day with a working breakfast, looking at articles in the Balcarras school magazine and in the newspaper created by last year's Y5 students. During the day, they also had the opportunity to meet some of our current Y7 students and to interview them about what life at Balcarras School is like.

Miss Wranosky and Mrs Young were so impressed by the hard work of the Y5 students and by the standard of the articles they produced. Copies of the finished newspaper are hot off the press and have been sent to the junior schools. We hope they enjoy reading the finished article!
