In order to support and encourage our students with their GCSE presentation skills whilst at the same time helping our KS3 students to develop their presentation and formal writing skills, we attended the green screening facility at The Word in South Shields. Here our KS4 students formally presented KS3 written work in the form of a news broadcast.

All students had the opportunity to operate the autocue for their peers and to use their presentation skills in role as a TV news reporter. Our KS4 students were instrumental in encouraging our KS3 students to appear in front of the camera with confidence. Without exception, all students involved were thoroughly engaged in the project and demonstrated impeccable behaviour throughout.
