ENTHUSIASTIC newshounds of Class 4 at Kingsacre Primary School in Braunton have certainly done their homework, as Gazette reporter Tony Gussin discovered when he paid them a visit.Using Ancient Egypt and the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb as their topic, the pupils came up with some impressive front pages.With guidance - and deadlines - from their teacher Mathew Walsh, the class split into news teams and each person assumed a different role, such as editor, photographer and reporter.After pupils wrote to the Gazette, Tony paid them a visit to chat about journalism and view their work:"I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very impressed by the work they had produced," he said."They were all very keen and asked a lot of good questions about how newspapers are put together and what it is we do."Hopefully my talk was interesting for them and will help with their project."In the year ahead it is hoped to start up a school newspaper, so the pupils' work will certainly prove useful and give them a little bit of a head start!
