The year 5 pupils at Peterhouse CE Primary Academy have been tasked with producing a newspaper based on environmental issues, in particular the impact of litter.

To help them produce their newspaper, this paper’s chief reporter Anthony Carroll visited the pupils and passed on his top journalistic tips.

He also took part in a question and answer session, which saw pupils ask a wide range of questions, such as why he had got into journalism, what makes a good story and how long does it take to write a lead length story.

The pupils have started their own litter campaign in school, as well as learning about the impact of plastic pollution and what everyone can do to reduce it.

Each year group at the school is producing its own newspaper to showcase the learning that has taken place during the term.
