Wimblington pupils make the headlines at The Guardian
Pupils from a Wimblington primary school made the headlines as they spent a day at The Guardian newspaper.
Seventeen children from years 5 and 6 from Thomas Eaton Primary Academy learnt how to be journalists at the London Kings Cross offices.
They learnt about how to structure a newspaper report, write headlines and insert pictures and captions.
The children used the latest technology to create their own front page about real news stories, starting with a lead paragraph with the "5 Ws" of who, what, where, when and why.
"It was a really fun experience, as we got to see what all the jobs were like," said one 10-year-old.

"I have been planning this trip since last March," said teacher Mrs Bultitude.
"It was a brilliant opportunity for the children to see a busy national newspaper office at work.
"The school wanted the children to experience a working environment outside their daily lives and raise their aspirations."
