Pupils take part in Collaborative Learning Day

On 23rd February, three pupils from Years 5 and 6 took part in a special Collaborative Learning Day at Bellevue Education’s Hampton Court office, to enhance their experience of the English Curriculum.

Organised by Bellevue’s Education Director, Sam Selby, the event formed part of a series of academic pupil collaboration days in English, Maths, Science and Computer Science, involving schools across the group.

Throughout the day, pupils were immersed in an interactive, enquiry based writing workshop focusing on why we have media and how it can be communicated in a variety of ways. They worked in a simulated ‘news agency’ environment and were challenged to produce a news story in various formats to emulate the range of ways media is delivered to us today, such as social media, news broadcasts, written journalism and radio.

Watch the News Agency brief that the pupils were challenged with:

Working collaboratively with pupils from other schools in the Bellevue Education group, the children embraced the challenge of problem-solving and delivering purposeful and valid information to a deadline. Pupils were required to think critically about the validity of information and to explore effective ways to communicate news. As part of the experience, pupils also enjoyed a seminar around journalism and the purpose of news and media, delivered by Media Consultant and former Reuters journalist and Foreign Correspondent, Hannah Storm, who has over 15 years’ experience in the world’s leading news media.

Tabitha said: “I really really loved the day!”

Max said: “I thought it was the best day, we had a really good time.”

Holly said: “I loved how we were able to get involved with everything and to work together with each other.”
