Newcastle United Writing Workshop

25th April 2017
Our KS3 boys spent the day learning the skills of a sports journalist at Newcastle United Football Club. It was a great time to visit as the team had just achieved their promotion the night before. The boys were treated to a tour of the stadium and then had a writing workshop where they were taught to take notes from a press conference, devise questions for a player and use their notes to write a news report.
Following a delicious lunch at the stadium, they then went to Newcastle Library to look at the Football archives and press articles associated with the club.
