BBC Young Reporter LIVE – 4:03pm

It is Takeover Week this week at Marden High, and our Year 8s have taken over the Media Studio and found out what is like in the high pressure world of journalism.

There have been some fantastic reports today during our first practice day of the year. Young journalists of the future handled complex topics maturely and confidently, & some of them even hit the deadline too! A great experience of the world of journalism and media!

Stories covered included environmental issues, the controversy surrounding palm oil, Article 13 and how it effects YouTube creators, and a maturely handled story about the controversy that still surrounds breast feeding in public.

Our Year 8s have had a brilliant day, and reports will appear online very soon!
