The Axholme Alliance 2017
Over the past few weeks Mrs Cox has been visiting pupils at our partner primary schools to help them prepare articles for their fifth edition of the school newspaper. This culminated in the pupils interviewing pupils and staff on various items such as news, sport and entertainment. The schools include Luddington & Garthorpe Primary School, Althorpe & Keadby Primary School, St Norbert’s Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy, Crowle Primary Academy and Gunness & Burringham C of E Primary School, Reedness Primary School and Swinefleet Primary School.
On Monday 27th February pupils made the journey to Lincoln University to spend a full day with university lecturers, students and volunteer journalists helping them bring all their articles together to produce The Axholme Alliance newspaper as well as trying a short TV exercise with second year TV students from the university.
After speaking to the children about the day and more importantly the students that helped out designing the pages and the TV taster sessions. The feedback from the pupils was as follows:
