One is a skills based programme, which focuses on newsgathering
across a single day. The work of BBC Northern Ireland's
news teams - both TV and radio - is intercut with the
preparation and presentation of Portstewart's 'Too Cool
for School' - a radio programme, which is produced entirely
by key stage two students.
By the end of the programme and activities
the students should be able to:
work effectively together as a 'production team'
come up with relevant and entertaining programme
ideas for their peer group
understand the importance of preparation and research
prepare for and conduct simple interviews
improve their numeracy skills as they time and edit
consider different points of view and listen and
respond effectively to others
