Year 10 Geographers have finished the academic year with a 3 day fieldtrip along the Yorkshire Coast and then to the Lake District. On Monday students visited various coastal locations to study coastal erosion and management strategies before travelling across to Keswick and Derwent Water in the Lake District. On Tuesaday the group enjoyed a leisurely walk around the lake to view Lodore Falls as a warm up for Wednesday’s Helvellyn climb. They were able to climb to within 30 minutes from the summit of Helvellyn before being turned around by gales and torrential rain. Despite not quite reaching the top of England’s 3rd highest peak, the students finished the year on a real high!
This week, 15 of our pupils from all year groups have had the fantastic opportunity to work with Stuart Whincup, BBC News reporter, as part of Northfield’s Young Reporters Scheme, designed to give pupils a valuable insight into the world of media and journalism.
Pupils gained knowledge about the media industry and how news stories are sourced and created, as well as utilising our school’s new ICT suite and video recording equipment. The day culminated in the production of a live video news report.
In addition to the day, students visited BBC Newcastle Studios where they participated in an interactive tour. This included the opportunity to sit behind the BBC Look North news desk, on the actual set where the news is filmed. Pupils also created their own radio drama and news report, using the BBC’s green screen, auto cue, and film and audio recording equipment.
One student said: “It was amazing to have the opportunity to work with a real life news reporter and gain first-hand knowledge of journalism. It was even better to be able to see the studios where it all comes together. I loved having a go at recording my own news story!”
In the Girls 4x100m Freestyle Relay Hannah Featherstone and her and team finished just outside the medals in 3:48.40 for fourth place.
Well done Hannah we are all very proud of your hard work, dedication and achievements
