A lesson in journalism
CHILDREN at a Newham primary school learnt how the pen can be mightier than the sword last week when they were given a lesson on journalism.
The pupils at Cleves Primary in Arragon Road, East Ham were given a presentation on journalism.
Kay Atwal Chief reporter said: “They were so keen they fired lots of questions at me before I got to the end.
“I was quite impressed at their in-depth knowledge about the newspaper industry. They were very media-savvy and had prepared well with lots of questions.
“I am sure there were a couple of budding journalists among them.”

Sultana Begum, 11, said “Very fascinating and interesting because her work really inspired me. Becoming a journalist is really hard. I thought it was easy, all you needed to do was just write a story but you have to work really hard.”
Johear Ali, 11, said: “I learnt that it takes a lot of time to become a journalist because they need to do everything correct. They need to write it and show their work to the Editor who tells them what they’ve done wrong.”
