After we all got there [the school], we started by selecting which story we would do – I chose a story about a girl who was abandoned by her young mother at a Burger King but found her mother after 28 years having sent an image out through social media.

Hello from Enya and Lacey, we’re the ‘weather girls’! So far we’ve been researching the national and local weather.

This is my first time of taking part in the BBC school report, and I am really glad I decided to take part. – Lacey
My first school report has started really well. We’re all working great as a team and are working as hard as we can to meet the tight deadlines. So far we have picked out the main weather articles from across the internet and many newspapers. I am so glad I have decided to take part, and I definitely will again in the future! – Enya
