BBC News School Report
Welcome to Freebrough Academy’s BBC News School Report. On Thursday 16 March 2017 students across the country became news reporters for the day, making their own news reports for a real audience. At Freebrough Academy, students from Year 7 & 8 were writing news articles and recording news reports.
Adam Clarkson, BBC Tees Broadcasting Journalist joined us at Freebrough Academy to record a radio broadcast which led to two of our students also having the chance to interview Adam. To listen to the broadcast please click the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04tpq5q
