On Friday, 10 Year 12 A Level linguists went to Kesteven and Sleaford High School for a Sixth Form SCOOP event. Divided into two teams of French and German budding editors and journalists, our intrepid newscasters set about producing their front pages for publication.
Both teams also gave presentations in French and German to an editorial team as well as setting up their own social media platforms. It was an exhilarating and at times stressful event, which gave us all an incredible insight in to the workings of a newspaper and the career of a journalist using modern languages.
We also had a talk by and the opportunity to work with Mr Simon Hart, a freelance sports journalist, who regularly covers international sporting events and interviews international athletes and sports men and women in their native languages. Individual prizes went to Saskia Garner and Christel Bazoua and a joint prize to the French team. Watch this space for our next scoop!
