19 Nov The Coleridge Makes Big News At The Guardian
Newspaper Club, a group of Year 5 and 6 children who produce our termly newspaper The Coleridge, were very excited to visit the headquarters of The Guardian this week. The children took part in an educational workshop which involved researching, writing, editing and formatting their very own newspaper front page. The group watched news stories as they broke on the press wires; they then researched and wrote stories before having lunch in the staff canteen.
After lunch, they took on the role of sub-editors, who fact check articles and look for mistakes. They were lucky enough to meet Billy, a sub-editor at The Guardian, who helped them to come up with fantastic headlines for their stories. After adding pictures and completing their pages they were ready to print!
Just as journalists do, the children had to work hard and keep to deadlines. We are sure it will help to improve the articles in our own (already wonderful) newspaper. You can read more about the trip in the upcoming Autumn edition of The Coleridge.
