Our BBC School Reporters Trip to London

On Monday 5th February, we had to say ‘Au revoir!’ to a very hardworking group of year 8 and year 10 pupils! A mix of 12 pupils from both years had one of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime, as they had the chance to visit the beautiful city of London. They set off bright and early and they were able to enjoy the comfort of a train journey. It was a busy and exciting day for the pupils; they visited the Houses of Parliament, interviewed a selection of well-known and local MPs and had the incredible experience of having a tour around the BBC Studios, hosted by the one and only Llanelli born, Huw Edwards! Ooh la la! They even had the chance to have pictures taken with Huw himself on the BBC Newsdesk.

Not only was there a tour, but a lady named Josie was kind and eager enough to talk to the pupils about the ins-and-outs of the BBC Studios and gave beneficial advice on their future prospects. It gave the pupils a useful and informative aspect on what the BBC Studios were all about. C’était incroyable! After the tour came to an end, three year 10 pupils: Maddy Ball, Amy Reilly and Freya Sperinck had the opportunity to interview Huw Edwards, with the BBC Studios as a fitting backdrop. They were able to provide inquisitive questions that challenged Huw’s view about the significance of languages in post-Brexit Britain. Following this, the pupils then set off from the Studios to the green overlooking the Houses of Parliament. Although the cold wind was close to unbearable at times, the pupils and Mrs Bozkurt powered through! Très bien! Three year 8 pupils: Rhydian Soady-Jackson, Chloe Milson and Olivia Jones, along with Matthew Jones, the leading cameraman, had the chance to interview the local MPs about their views on the benefits and importance of languages post-Brexit.

After the challenging and educational interviews on the green, the pupils then had an exciting tour around the Houses of Parliament with the lovely Tonia Antoniazzi MP. C’était vraiment intéressant! It was an eye-opening experience for the pupils, and sparked an interest in their political side. Could they be future MPs in the making? Or would they prefer to be roving reporters or broadcast journalists? Soon the day drew to a close and the pupils were then back on the train and looking forward to reminiscing to their parents about the fantastic experience in London. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and was one trip planned by the MFL Department that they’d remember for many years to come.
