Virtual newsroom

Online pop-up TV studio and newsroom for budding mini reporters to learn how to create, debate, and navigate the news with confidence!

Try our free online newsroom today and receive a free 100-page reporter activity pack in the post – worth £10.

Parents are choosing Media Cubs as one of their learning allies so that their children can become confident communicators who can create, navigate and debate the news.

We have brought our pop-up TV studio and newsroom – led by journalist and mum Kirsty Day – online to host weekly hands-on media challenges including photography and filming, comic strip-making, TV presenting, and newspaper reporting.

The one-hour weekly workshops are aimed at 7-11 year-olds and will:

– Provide positive screen and media time at home where they will learn how to spot fake news and try out various news roles: from TV presenter, sports correspondent or comic strip writer

– Provide opportunities to interview real-life guests in the newsroom – as well as interact with their fellow mini-reporters

– Boost your little person’s communications skills, giving them the confidence to give their views so they do not feel shut out of ‘grown-up’ conversations

Try your first session for FREE and your mini reporter will receive a 100-page activity pack. You can then pay as you go on a ‘pay as you feel basis’ for each session thereafter.

Can’t attend regularly? No worries, all our workshops take on individual activities and challenges so you can drop into them at any time – but mini reporters experience the real value when they grow together as a news team, week by week.

Kirsty is a DBS- checked, qualified journalist and mum. 

*NB: Please will you allow 3 – 4 working days for the Reporter Pack to arrive in the post as it plays an important part in the workshops.
