Two nine-year-old girls are planning to set up a school newspaper to be run solely by children at the school.
Pocklington Community Junior School Year 4 pupils Daisy Haffey and Emma Warne invited Pocklington Post Editor Ed Asquith and reporter Daniel Willers to the school last Monday to discuss their ideas for the paper.
Ed and Daniel were impressed by the list of story ideas the two youngsters had created so far and their desire to establish a newspaper at such a young age.
The Pocklington Post duo gave Daisy and Emma some useful advice about the possible format of the school paper, types of stories they could write about and the job roles involved in running a paper.
Among Emma and Daisy’s story ideas is to write about children who join part way through a term so that all the children in school know who the new person is and a little bit about them so they can make them feel welcome.
The school paper, which Daisy and Emma have decided to call ‘Small Talk’, will be run by children from all year groups and will be published once a term.
