Image caption Before the big interview the pupils began filming their school report explaining where they were and what they were doing. It was very much of a team effort with Jennifer and Iona reporting whilst Melissa assisted with the filming. Meanwhile, Sasha and Adam were filmed in a different location discussing the project and asking other pupils questions.
