Broadcasting is when you tell everyone your story and actually tell people what you have discovered during your trip to the World War One battlefields.

You can show it to your class or maybe do a presentation at an assembly so more people in school can find out about the trip.

But you might also want to share your experiences and broadcast your report to a wider audience and for School Report, this means publishing your finished report(s) on your school website.

BROADCASTING RESOURCES

How you can you get a bigger audience? Is there is a special World War One commemoration event in your local area or a community group or local history society who might be interested in your report. If the focus of your battlefields report is related to a local regiment or soldiers this might be especially relevant.

Why not promote the broadcast by emailing links to friends, family or other schools or by promoting the report with posters in school or your local library?
