On Monday the 20th of April the editor of the C2K Newsdesk, David Huntley, came to our school. I was very excited that he was coming; I particularly wanted to hear his voice because I had heard it before when he was reading out the news.
It was connect a face to his voice. David was talking about who he worked with; Amy and their roles at the Newsdesk.
He answered some questions. We found out that he reads the news at about 8 am (sometimes in his pjs!) and he used to be a teacher before he became the editor.
He showed us everything about the Newsdesk, we all liked it when he went on the game section and he let us play one. He also let us do the vote, it was about football and the one we chose was the most popular.
We had to go on the Newsdesk for our homework. I read all the stories and left a comment on one. Other children in my class had left comments too. It was fun to read the other comments.
I love the news desk; it’s a great way to get kids to hear about what’s happening in our world.
