Wren Spinney @ Channel 4 News!

Written by Ann Brown. Posted in School News


The Wren Spinney News Team were invited by Katie Razzall to visit her at work at Channel 4 News in central London.

Yesterday, the team had a fantastic time meeting all the Channel 4 news team and touring the studios.

They were able to plan and record their own weekly news working with the Channel 4 production team, using their cameras, sound, graphics and editing equipment.

They watched the lunchtime news being transmitted live and then interviewed the presenter before taking over the studio to record Wren news.

The edited version of their news item is available via this link:

Thank you Katie and all at Channel 4 for making our day very special and memorable.
