We were extremely privileged to have journalist and author Sam Jordison run a journalism workshop for a group of keen students. Sam writes for The Guardian newspaper, has written several very successful book series and lectures at the University of East Anglia.
He talked initially about the importance of good journalism in today’s world, especially when there is so much fake news circulating in the media. Students were then taught about the elements involved in writing a successful news article and will be putting his tips into practice on sports day, when they will report on the events as they happen.
Over the course of his visit, Sam had lots of fantastic advice for our budding journalists, saying that it was really important to just write, read lots of books and keep up to date with what is happening in the news. With a wealth of skills to now draw on, this group of writers could well be the journalists of the future!
