BBC News School Report goes local

Students in across London meet the BBC's Challenge and create their own local news

As students across the UK anxiously try to recreate their very own versions of the 6 O'clock news in their classrooms, pupils at Barking Abbey and St. Catherines school provide us with a peek at their working newsroom.

Year 8 students in Barking and Dagenham and Bexley have been working very hard over the last few months as they take part in the BBC News School Report. Using lesson plans and materials from the BBC News School Report website, and with support from BBC staff, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills and become School Reporters.

Girls from St Catherines school

Around one hundred schools across the country will take part in BBC News School Report Day - creating news reports and publishing or broadcasting them on their school website.

Pupils at Barking Abbey opted to report their news in as a TV bulletin while the girls from St. Catherines in Bexley chose to present their news report on radio and were kindly allowed to present a live bulletin on their local community radio station, TGR.
