News Makers!


Welcome to St Martin’s Newsround!

This week’s headlines: Children from two classes work together to produce a fantastic news programme; Northgate do amazing art; and children find out how adverts persuade us to buy things.

Our main story this week is about the fantastic newsroom day that the children in Northgate class had on Tuesday. It included interviewing real people about their real lives and news stories, using a reporter’s notebook to record the interviews; Writing awesome news stories using the notes; presenting the stories in front of the wonderful St Martin’s Newsroom green screen; and finally publishing them to the world online.

 You can see some of the brilliant results below.

The experience was fantastic and the children really embraced their roles with enthusiasm and passion. The skills and confidence that the children learnt and demonstrated during this process will continue to be built upon in coming weeks and months. Giving the children an ever increasing bank of experiences to draw upon in their future lives.

Next week, Northgate will be focusing on the tricks and tactics that advertisers use to persuade us to do things, and creating their own persuasive adverts using the same skills.
