The very first edition of St Martin Academy’s newspaper – Smart News – has been delivered to parents this week.
The paper has been written, edited and designed entirely by Key Stage 2 pupils who have worked hard over the past few weeks learning the basics of reporting and immersing themselves in a busy newsroom environment.
Features include an agony aunt and uncle page; school sports coverage; interviews and book reviews.
Mr Roberts said: “The children have really enjoyed the topic and have taken a great deal of pride in producing their first edition. They have been responsible for every aspect of the newspaper and have gained a great deal from interviewing different people and writing articles.
“I’ve been so impressed by their attitude and look forward to hearing the first reviews of Smart News!”
