Guardian Helps Students Make Newspaper - Thien, Year 10, Reports

Thien, Year 10, reports on how students made their own newspaper, with help from the Guardian.

Last month, our Year 10, was given the opportunity to create and publish our own news articles at the Guardian office.

We were split into groups to create a full newspaper consisting of 12 articles. We decided on our editorial roles including sports editor, home editor and more.

Then we filtered through news articles and chose 3-4 articles each that we would later discuss in a meeting within our groups. In this meeting we decided on 12 articles to be in our newspaper.

We were then allocated the articles that we needed to write and were given time to research. There was quite a lot of pressure during the writing process as we had a very short time limit to complete the articles. However, we all persevered and managed to finish the articles, including choosing pictures and creating our own headlines.

Finally, we were able to decide on the name of our newspaper alongside the price. The trip gave us an amazing insight into journalism and will undoubtedly help us in our English GCSEs.

“It was an amazing opportunity to see the hard work and time that goes into writing and publishing newspapers," said Xue-Jun, Year 10. "I was really proud at having contributed to making my own newspaper.”

And here's what our newspapers looked like!

A big THANK YOU to the team at Guardian Education Centre for making this invaluable experience possible.
