Schools Report Day on BBC
Save Our BBC says: “Only the BBC can work on this scale to educate and encourage school students in broadcast journalism. Only the BBC provides a wealth of educational materials and opportunities used in our primary and secondary schools every term day. We must save this invaluable contribution to the development of our children, their citizenship and social responsibility.
Do take a look at the fantastic reports and packages produced by yesterday’s student journalists and see their different take on many familiar stories: at www.bbc.co.uk/schoolreport .”
Thursday 19 March 2015 was BBC News School Report Day. School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to become journalists for the day and make their own news reports for a real audience.
The 2015 School Report News Day is the ninth and biggest yet. This year more than 1,000 schools across the UK took part. Using lesson plans and materials from the BBC and with support from BBC staff, 30,000 students produced video, audio and text-based news reports. You can search for schools which took part using this interactive map.
The BBC linked with every school at bbc.co.uk/schoolreport and opened up its doors all around the UK to budding reporters. School Reporters were heard on all English language radio stations and even many of the BBC’s global language services too.
