On the 7th of February, Camborne Science & International Academy welcomed a group of Year 5 pupils to become reporters for the day.
Armed with the tools of the trade, a notebook, pen, a sense of curiosity and their skills of deduction, the budding journalists were prepared to blow the lid off some exciting stories!
Excellent group work and team skills helped turn the CSIA ICT suites into two real life newsrooms. Racing against the clock to get the biggest scoop, the atmosphere was buzzing with energy and creativity, making the experience enjoyable for all.
The pupils got the chance to use their imagination and set up scenarios using a range of different props and costumes. Their creative juices ran riot and the pupils produced a range of exciting photo opportunities from aliens attacking the England rugby game to the take-over of ludicrous loom bands.
Using these fascinating scenarios, the students then created sensational headlines and newspaper stories that would be worthy of any contemporary media publication. Both newsrooms demonstrated some exceptional creative and literary skill, allowing both publications to reflect the highest quality news stories that would make any front page a must read.
Overall, a fantastic time was had by all and we look forward to hearing more exciting stories from the Super Saturday press.
