Pupils at Thomas Eaton school in Wimblington make their own headlines
Budding journalists from Thomas Eaton Primary Academy in Wimblington spent a day at the offices of The Guardian newspaper in London's Kings Cross learning to be reporters.
The 17 Year 5 and 6 pupils learnt about how to structure a newspaper report, write headlines and insert pictures and captions. The children used the latest technology to create their own front page about real news stories, starting with a lead paragraph with the ‘five Ws’ of who, what, where, when and why and following up with added detail and finally adding quotations.
"It was a really fun experience, as we got to see what all the jobs were like," said one 10 year old. "It made me want to be a journalist when I grow up."
