BUDDING journalists at a Black Isle primary school are sure to know a scoop when they see one after turning their classroom into a newsroom for a special project that introduced them to both print and electronic news-gathering.

 

Tore Primary pupils took up the role-playing challenge with gusto, going on to produce their own newspapers.

The Ross-shire Journal was happy to lend a helping hand by providing some suitable ‘props’ such as newspaper billboards, delivery bags and display stands.

A parent employed in the film industry was also able to go into the school to share some tricks of the trade.

That allowed the young news hounds to produce their own reports and weather forecasts which were then edited down to create Tore’s very own version of Newsround.

Showing good noses for a story, they shot some scenes in their new playground, interviewing members of the school about their recent cross-country competition success and the new playground equipment.

Pupils also had the chance to work with a green screen for the studio parts of their broadcast.
