Student Blog by The Kings and Queens News Team - Friday 3 March 2017

The Kings and Queens News Team are busy preparing for this year's BBC News School Report scheduled to take place on Thursday 16 March 2017.

So, what will be their story...?

2017 is well underway. Our Prime Minister Theresa May is embarking on the battle for a hard, smooth, soft (make it work!) Brexit as the end of March deadline to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty looms. Have 250 words ever been so important in the history of our country...?

Across the pond, the not-so-new President of the United States of America is busy fulfilling his election pledges; whilst eyes are on France for the first round of their presidential elections.

But closer to home, after plotting and planning, the team now have their scoop: "Going the Extra Mile." It's a story that matters to young people in the context of our rural community and they are busy preparing scripts, interviewees and film locations.

To find out more about the BBC News School Report, you can check the academy website at the end of the day next Thursday where you'll be able to see their report.

Good luck to the team!
