On Thursday 7th March 2019, SJWMS Young Reporters completed a full day of reporting for their real BBC News Day.  They were dedicated, hardworking and great team players, helping each other every step of the way.  They worked hard to produce this year's news programme covering the following topics:  World Book Day 2019, the cult of the celebrity, a rise in knife crime in the UK, VAR in sport and should the internet be more tightly censored?

On Thursday 7th February, the SJWMS BBC School Report team completed a practice news day.  This means working as a team to create a full news programme including a range of topics.  This requires extensive research, filming interviews and creating articles, and a lengthy editing process.  The students worked tirelessly all day to produce a packed programming including items such as: Does social media affect your mental health (Fortnite and Instagram), should the school day begin later (at 10am)? Alongside this, some new recruits to the team discuss recent Youtubers toppling from fame.  Please find our full news programme on our YouTube.  Link to Feb. 2019 programme:

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.
