The Nintendo Switch

by Anthony

The Nintendo Switch was released on 3rd March 2017, and some people went to a lot of trouble to buy one first.  For example; Captain Nintendo Dude (CND) and Triforce Johnson, who went to New York City at the beginning of February to be the first to buy the new gaming console.

We interviewed people about their experience of the Nintendo Switch, see our news report below.  I think that the Nintendo Switch is the best console I have ever played.  Malvin thinks that the Nintendo Switch is a very good portable console for both children and adults. Jack thinks that Nintendo have come a long way with this console and that it is very advanced compared to competing products in the market.

In conclusion we all think that the Nintendo Switch is a very advanced portable console.

Government Cuts Academy Budgets!

by Danyl

This morning we interviewed our Principal, Ms. Askew.  We discussed with her the topic of ‘the cutting of school budgets’; we asked questions implying the loss of staff and fewer activities in the curriculum. We have learnt from this interview that Ms. Askew is struggling to keep full-time employed staff.

One of the many problems the Academy is suffering from is a loss of a Science Technician.  From the reduced budget, we cannot afford resources for education.  So we have made our newsreport about our school and the budget cuts resulting from government policy to more equally distribute funding throughout England and Wales.
