Budding reporters from Reedley Primary School posed lots of tough questions to one of our reporters when she visited their media club last week.

Katie Hammond told her prospective recruits all about life as a reporter for a weekly newspaper and the group discussed the different ways in which news can be broadcast and the different types of stories that appear in newspapers.

The group then all thought of how they might write stories about subjects that they were interested in. They will now work to a deadline to submit their work and the best story will win a prize.
