Creating a School Newspaper Resource Pack
Education Business Partnership - School Newspaper Resource Pack
This is a premium paid-for resource.
The newspaper resource contains detailed instructions on how to set up and run a pupil-led school newspaper. The resource can be used with students in upper KS1 and above. It includes a range of engaging activities that teach students about the publishing industry, learning which they then go on to apply in setting up their own newspaper publishing company. Students name and brand their publishing company, take on different roles within it, manage the company's finance, write and publish a school paper and create the materials to promote it.
