We arrived at Walton High School bright and early; some of us were even ready to go at 7:30! To begin, the various teams had to news gather and scour the morning papers for the best stories to deliver. Some of us wrote short summaries for Twitter, and others wrote more detailed articles for our blog. It wasn’t long before everybody’s scripts were written and edited, and we were ready to begin the arduous task of filming everybody’s components. This lasted throughout the morning, and into the afternoon, keeping the web team busy logging our progress. We prepared the set up of our news report screen, and spent time reading the latest news on the BBC website. We ended on a high note, by taking team photographs that could be shown on our website, blog and Twitter page. It has been a thoroughly enriching learning experience, and we can speak for every member of the Walton High team when we say we all had a great day, and we will be awaiting next year in anticipation.
