Primary School winner
The Galahad Gazette
A brilliant newspaper that perfectly balances school news, local community news and global issues while engaging readers with fascinating facts, amusing incidents, puzzles, reviews and more. It is the superb achievement by the Year 6s at Fladingworth Primary School who set themselves a two-week challenge to create a newspaper for the rest of the community when they returned to school in June. Not only that, they printed their newspaper and delivered it to all the homes in the village.
Year 6 pupil Adrian tells us, “One of the class is an avid First News reader and kindly supplied us with back copies which were very useful to provide us with inspiration. No one else though had much experience with newspapers at all – even their parents seldom have newspapers at home. So we found the First New Junior Journalist’s Guide an invaluable source of information, teaching us about the protocols and conventions associated with newspapers.”
