Southbrook School: TV stars

VIDEO: Pupils create news show

Children in year-group 'bubbles' can't mix at Southbrook School in Exeter, so they've found a unique way of keeping up with one another's news. They've produced a TV news programme, packed with features and weather, using wizard technology such as green screens and graphics. 

In a breaking news item, the children discover who their new headteacher will be from next January.

Some items are scripted, others improvised. But they're all presented so brilliantly that BBC Spotlight presenter Justin Leigh's sent the children a message of his own.  This short video report is from Spotlight, currently presented by Mr Leigh (but who knows how long for).
