Sports Journalism to develop literacy and engagement


As part of the PESS programme in South Wales I have been working with two great schools, cure Chepstow Comprehensive and Eastern High.  These two schools have engaged in a joint project to look at developing literacy through PE and in working together are trying out new methods in engaging students.

Last thursday saw Chepstow host Eastern in a multi sports event with the focus of giving their sports journalism teams something to write about.  Throughout the event the two teams of reporters filmed the action, healing interviewed players and wrote match reports.  This was all then taken back into the classroom to create their final report.

A great day organised by @jamiegodzy and supported by @easternhigh.

During our Conference on the 13th June we will be sharing this project, ampoule how they selected the students and the outcome of the project.

Below is a quick trailer to wet the appetite.
