'Wolf ' sighting all in the name of news for school kids
8:00am Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS were tipped off about a wolf being on the loose in their school grounds.
But don’t worry, it’s all in the name of news.
Year Three children at Highwoods Community Primary School have been learning how to investigate and write the news after teachers spotted suspicious activity in the Tynedale Square school grounds.
The young journalists then conducted a series of interviews with senior school staff and put together a school newspaper story on the sightings.
Helen Rose, whose class took part, said: “The kids have loved it.
“They have really thrown themselves into and they came up with some great headlines and were really comfortable working in a newspaper format using columns.”
