BBC School Report
At Ysgol Aberconwy, we’re proud to be part of the BBC School Report!
BBC School Report is a journalism project for students aged 11 to 18 across the UK. We use BBC School Report with our Sixth Form pupils who are studying Media.
They plan and capture news stories from in and around the school; we then upload to this page, which is linked to the BBC School Report’s interactive map. This means our news is accessible to a worldwide BBC audience. The BBC also showcase the work of the school across BBC programmes in the UK on News Day which is Thursday 15th March 2018!
Being part of BBC School Reports allows our pupils to…
- upload their work and programme ideas directly to the BBC where they can be pitched to programme-makers
- attend BBC events in our area
- learn a range of journalistic and technical skills from BBC staff, presenters and online resources
- use BBC branding, graphics and animations in their reports and on our web page
- improve digital and media literacy
- use resources which link to the school curriculum across the UK
- report on activities our school is undertaking such as events for BBC Children in Need and BBC Sport Relief
- take part in a high-profile project which works with hundreds of UK schools and organisations
