Reporting skills

On Tuesday 9th Fionn McArthur came to talk to us about reporting. He is our mentor for the school report.
He showed us some of the reports he has done for BBC Reorting Scotland and gave us tips on writing news and filming.
He made us aware of how we need to make sure our information is accurate.
We also have to use good headlines to capture the interest of our audience and stick to the main points.
We had a very interesting discussion and asked lots of questions. We are ready to start organising and writing our local story and Fionn is helping us with links for an international report.
We were all in our pyjamas that day as we were raising funds for the Haiti disaster appeal. We don't normally dress like that!
