Discovery Education Filming

On Thursday 5th December, we were delighted to welcome Discovery Education into school to film classes using Espresso News Bites. They were looking for a school to incude on thier website, showing their news programmes being used in an exemplary way.

As a school we feel it is important that children are aware of what is going on in the world around them, not just the local area. However, the adult news programmes are filled with stories which are often frightening and use language which children find hard to access. Espresso work in conjunction with ITV News, to provide a child friendly look at the world, through their daily 60 minute news programme and the weekly News Bites, which is accompanied by a quiz, that the children absoutely love.

We had a fabulous day filming and our pupils were, as always impeccable in thier behaviour. Lucy, the Espresso news reader sent us a message of thanks, which delighted us all.
