The Kender Times comes to Kender!
For a number of years, Children at Kender have been reading and enjoying ‘First News’ (a newspaper aimed at KS2). Each week it is delivered to book corners and read from cover to cover. It was about time Kender wrote and circulated a newspaper of its own!
Children from Years 4, 5 and 6 submitted a lengthy application explaining why they would be a good member of the newspaper team, how they could be open and fair journalists and what topics they would like to write about.
At the beginning of 2023, the first team came together, decided on the content and started researching and writing. After editing the articles, they were finally ready. In February, the first edition of The Kender Times was published (paper and digital versions) and distributed to each class - there was a real buzz around school!
Every three weeks, a new group will work on the next edition of The Kender Times; each group bringing fresh ideas and new topics to research.
