When we arrived into the room today I was so nervous, I mean there was so much pressure to get the job done on time. Conor and I started off the day by searching through newspapers and the internet to find some interesting sport news. Conor was doing a main story so it was huge but he was doing only one.
Meanwhile I was finding out quite a few short stories. Once we had all our information we typed it onto a Microsoft word document and then saved it in to the Pupil save area. Then we went onto the internet and copied all of the writing onto an autocue so that we could practise for the filming.
Conor and I spent 30 minutes practising, making sure that we knew it well. Then as it was not our turn to be filmed we asked other people if they needed any help. Unfortunately everyone was practising by now so no one needed us to help.
Then we all held a meeting and we were told that we were running late. So after the meeting Conor and I were told you have to be filmed now. I was getting really excited now because we were going to have the chance to be on TV. I was also determined not to muck up. Unfortunately that’s exactly what we did because on autocue it was on a too slow pace so Conor and I had to read it really slowly and because of that it sounded terrible. After we were told that if there was time we would be filmed again but if not then it was unlucky. I was so annoyed because we could just have destroyed the whole news day.
Afterwards I was asked to help out with some filming so I had to film Alex and Jenni. When I went back to the news room I heard the best news all day- Conor and I were being allowed to film again! Even better we did it perfectly this time so we had not ruined the whole thing.
Overall I really enjoyed doing the BBC school news group as it was really fun. Also you got to find out all about the news while you did it. I would really recommend doing this as I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
