Olympic torch relay: Day 48

It is a trip along the east coast of England today for the Olympic torch, as it travels from Norwich to Ipswich, with School Reporters helping to tell the story of 2012.

School Reporter Chris, from Ormiston Venture Academy in Great Yarmouth, got the chance to report from the Olympic Park during the School Games, where he was reporting as part of the event's Youth Media Team.

The Games brought together around 1,600 elite school-age athletes to compete in a range of sports, including athletics, swimming, cycling and wheelchair basketball.

Chris was in the media room inside the stadium when the news that Prince Harry was becoming the president of the School Games broke and sprung into action, writing up a report for the BBC website.

Chris, and other members of the Youth Media Team, also helped contribute to School Report's live coverage from the Olympic Park on the day.

The Games are getting ever closer and school reporters from John Grant School in Great Yarmouth have already been reporting about of the lesser known sports we'll be seeing this summer.

They explain how Boccia was originally played by ancient Greeks but that today it is a Paralympic sport "similar to bowls". Although, Boccia is a Paralympic sport, students emphasise that "boccia can be played by anybody".

The students at John Grant School "love Boccia" some have even trained to become Young Boccia Officials.

Let's just say things got explosive...
