BBC School Report

Welcome to SJWMS BBC School Report.  Our dedicated news team meets every Wednesday after-school to gather and report on news that is relevant to our students.  You can also find us by looking on the BBC School Report website and finding us on their school map!

Our live news day this year will be on Thursday 16th March.  On this day, we have to work together to create a full news programme for the BBC which is linked to their website and can be accessed by millions of people. Watch this space for our programme!

Our past work has included interviewing the Olympic Gold Medalists the Brownlee brothers, visiting the Human Research Labs and interviewing  Paralympic Gold Medalist David Weir, being interviewed by Ian Palmer from the BBC and visiting The Guardian newspaper to create our very own newspaper front pages.

Please see below for our most recent articles and videos, and keep checking for updates!  Our older stories are on the second tab called ‘BBC School Report Archive’.

On 10th March 2016, we took part in the BBC School Report real news day.  We had to meet a tight deadline and get all of our stories uploaded by 2pm that day.

The School Report team has covered a wide range of topics from their interview with gold Paralympic medallist David Weir and their tour of the Human Research Labs, to insights on the controversial issue of whether tackling in school rugby should be banned.  We've also covered Sport Relief, Tim Peake's space mission, whether technology is overpriced and much more.
