Budding reporters make the headlines with stories on burglary

Year 6 children at Filton Hill Primary school have been looking at journalistic writing in literacy and recently staged a ‘burglary’ in the head teacher’s office!Emily and Mike

The children had to investigate by collecting facts and interviewing the head teacher and the caretaker.

They planned and wrote their own articles, supposedly for Filtonvoice.

Filtonvoice editor Richard Coulter judged the articles and said that the quality was very high.

He said: "It was good to see attention to detail in all the articles - this is one of the
most important skills for journalists.

"It was hard to pick the best but I felt that the entries by Emily Powell and Mike Meehan conveyed best the drama of the incident."
