BBC News School Report Challenge


10 Years of BBC School Report

2016 marks the tenth year of BBC News School Report day, and Marden High School have been there since the very beginning.

Back in 2007 we broadcast live on BBC Breakfast, in 2014 BBC Look North reported live from our Media Studio and this year we were lucky enough to chat to BBC weather reporter Carol Kirkwood about our current reports.

Here’s our final reports from our Year 8 team, presented by anchors Connor, Jessica, Harvey and Kate.

BBC News Day LIVE – 9:47am

We have selected our stories and are running with these:

  • 10 years of BBC School Report at Marden
  • Social Media, its effects and pressures for teenagers
  • Our new building; moving in September 2016
  • Gender in Sport – how girls can get involved
  • Football – who will win the Champions League?

…and we are eagerly awaiting a phone call from BBC’s weather reporter Carol Kirkwood!
