Now with the news it's Lyndon School Humanities College in Solihull

In January 2009 some of the students took part in a practice news day for BBC School News Report.

Practice makes Perfect

At Lyndon School Humanities College in Solihull, 30 students worked in small groups. They each reported on one local and one national or international report. Humanities co-ordinator Rowena Bailey said:

"Not all groups completed both tasks in the time, but this was all part of the learning experience, and very valuable as students learn how to manage their time and work to a deadline!"

With the help of English teacher Emma Maslin, each group is now preparing a longer report for 26 March on an aspect of local news of interest to them. Ms Bailey added: "Students and staff enjoyed working on this project, and are looking forward to the real thing!"

School Website

The work from students at Lyndon School Humanities College is now on their school website. The headlines on their front page include: Drug raids in Birmingham, 1,923,000 jobless, Traumatic start to police career, Two Burmese fishermen, Barack dreams, Fuel smuggling in Gaza, Jaguar Land Rover opens academy, Obama retakes oath and Villa legend dies.
