BBC News School Report 2014

 Students from Collingwood  made the news for real on Thursday 27 March 2014 as they took part in BBC News School Report. 

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news  reports for a real audience.

Using lesson plans and materials, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.

 Students have created video news reports which have been uploaded here on our school website, to which the BBC aims to link.

Over the course of the last seven years, School Report has worked with thousands of schools to tell the stories that matter to young people - and this year will be no exception.

BBC News presenter and former teacher, Huw Edwards, is working on School Report.


This is our Collingwood College BBC News School Report about teachers and how they feel about the strike that recently happened on Wednesday 26 March.

We are researching technology and gadgets in schools and the effects it has on students as well as their learning.  However, this does have a negative effect.  It can involve cheating, harming your skills and cyber-bullying.  We suggest there are restrictions put in place for using technology during certain parts of the day.
