Journalist Workshop

We welcomed journalists Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire to St Matthew’s this morning.

Andrew and Kevin spoke to pupils in Key Stage 2 about their work as journalists.  We heard about their journeys to becoming newspaper reporters and the children were encouraged to work hard at school, to follow their dreams and to have fun with their learning!

The children asked a wonderful variety of questions about the world of journalism and learnt about the different aspects of media that reporters cover – politics, sports, fashion, music, show business…

Andrew and Kevin spoke about listening to the viewpoints and opinions of others and that it is alright to disagree, but not to be disagreeable.
