Wrangle School News

Wrangle Reporters have decided to write about people and events at Wrangle Primary School. We will be looking at how our local newspapers report on news events, sport, entertainment, fashion, and other items we may find. Some of our articles will reflect local and national news that has been highlighted in the media, including radio and T.V. The Editor and some roving reporters will be going out and about in the area in order to obtain first hand information about our environment.

EDITOR'S NOTE Please email wranglereporters@gmail.com if you have any suggestions or comments. Some of these may be published!

Editor: Jeannette Ellwood

Our Team of Reporters for 2012 is:
Zak, Helena, Georgia, Bethan, Arron and Sophy

P.S.I take full responsibilty for any typos! Just let me know if you spot one and I will send you the Editor's Special Secret Award...

After very busy Christmas activities and a break during the first half of our Spring Term Wrangle Reporters are back to work with writing, reporting and and film making.

Our current projects include filming footage for a DVD about our school, observing nature at Freiston Shore RSPB site, and preparing Art for a continuation of an School exhibition at Giles Academy Art Gallery in nearby Boston.

Future Projects

We are planning a visit to BBC Lincolnshire studios in Lincoln as a followup to Scott Dalton's visit to our school. We are currently arranging poetry sessions with our local poet Annette Burrell and are already looking forward to an Easter visit to the Old Pottery where no doubt a quantity of Sophy's famous cupcakes will be consumed...not to mention the publication of our Writing Rocks story competition results.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire's Scott Dalton

The tables were turned on Mr Dalton as our WrangleSchool Reporters interviewed him for our School Blog when he visited Wrangle School on Monday last.  He told the children that he started reporting with the Boston Standard when he was on work experience with them.   He  then spent a short time with the Target and was eventually offered a job with BBC Radio Lincolnshire. In answer to Zak's question 'What is it like to be a broadcaster?' he replied
'I've been doing this job for 11 years, and I really enjoy it.' He said after being nervous to start with it only took him a few seconds to get used to the microphone. Arron and Sophy both asked him if he went to lots of small villages like this.
'Oh yes' he replied, 'My job takes me to lots of small villages all over Lincolnshire. We live in a very rural county.'
As BBC radio Lincolnshire came to school because Wrangle had been chosen as one of the places the 2012 Olympic torch will pass through Georgia wanted to know if Scott had been to an Olympic event before.
'No I haven't although I did visit the London site just as it was being built.' Georgia thought he was very kind and noticed he carried a microphone which said radio Lincolnshire written in a triangle.
Bethan was interested in the sort of interviews he usually did and asked him if he had ever been to a really bad incident. He replied that he had been to many family problems in his time. Helena wanted to know if he had ever been really nervous.
His answer to that question was 'Yes, especially when I first started with the BBC.'

Question time for Scott ended with one from Bethan who put in a special request for a song dedicated to Wrangle School.
'We would like the tune for the Final Countdown!' she said.
Everyone decided they would love to visit the BBC studio in Lincoln, to see Scotts workplace.
