Year 8 experience fascinating BBC virtual workshop

Year 8 were treated to a fascinating virtual workshop led by BBC journalist and executive producer, Adam Grimley. Adam has worked on programmes such as ‘Panorama’ and produced award winning documentaries from around the globe.

The theme of the workshop was ‘Real News.’ Pupils were challenged to uncover the truth in news stories and given the tools to detect ‘fake’ stories through a series of tasks. It was evident that it is not always easy to spot ‘fake news’ and how important it is for everyone to be responsible about what they post and place their trust in.
