Making the News 2

MTN2 is a website designed to introduce students to the world of online media publishing and broadcasting in the 21st century. Pupils can use the site to create articles and programmes which when approved by the teacher will then appear on the school MTN2 Home Page. Why not use the Media Editor to create your own “News at Ten” style presentation about life in your local community 100 years ago or to present your report about the life of an Edwardian child? Great opportunities for dressing up!
