Mini reporters hit the headlines in Greater Manchester

Stop the press! Mini reporters at a Media Cubs club in Trafford, Greater Manchester, has a trio of local press hits for their news reports on Coronavirus.

Before their school, Woodheys Primary, went into lockdown like all schools across the country, they created their own news reports and learnt how to spot fake news on Coronavirus to help keep their family and friends calm and safe.

And their efforts did not go unnoticed by the local press – who reported on their great work – seeing them hit the headlines in the South Manchester News, Entirely NW and the Sale & Altrincham Messenger.

It didn’t take long for word to spread about their press coverage on social media either; with the headteacher of their school, among others, sharing it on Twitter, as well as their school friends getting the newspaper through their letterbox. 

Kirsty Day, Media Cubs project leader, said: “I am so proud of this Media Cubs team – they did such a great job on this report and getting three press hits in the local news for it was well deserved. Congratulations to this talented news team!”
