Today you were all enrolled as students at the Lings School of Journalism. Your first assignment is to visit a remote Mediterranean island where there have been reports of a spectacular and devastating storm. You will need to visit the island in order to gather the facts, interview witnesses and write your report.
What have you found out so far? How did the storm start? Why did Prospero do this? Who was on the ship? What does Miranda think about this?
Feel free to leave your journalist’s notes here!

As part of our PE sessions with the Northampton Town Football Club community department, we were given the opportunity to look round Sixfields this afternoon. We visited the home changing room, walked out of the tunnel, sat in the dug-out and even got to sit in the comfy seats usually reserved for the directors!
Our involvement with the Cobblers has not finished yet. After Christmas you will have the opportunity to attend the home League 1 match against Coventry City…WOW!
What were your highlights of our visit to Sixfields?
