A Recorder reporter was invited to Goodmayes Primary School to teach Year 6 pupils how to write a news story about a big housing development on their doorstep.
Imogen Braddick visited the school in Castleton Road to talk to pupils about the plans to build more than 1,200 homes, a new school and a village hall on the site of Tesco in Goodmayes.
The pupils had been tasked with writing a news story about the development and wanted some help from a reporter.
