Chloe and Isaac, two of the Year 7 students who were interviewed as part of the Newsround piece on the EU Referendum on Tuesday 14th June, gave an insight on their involvement.
What did you think when you heard that you had been chosen to talk about the EU Referendum on TV?
To start with, we thought it was just going to be USH TV and we were going to be interviewed by someone from School. Then we found out that it was going to be on Newsround.
Do you watch Newsround?
C: Not really! But I do know what it is.
I: I used to watch it when I was younger, but I watch the News now. I recognised Ricky (the presenter).
What did other people in your year think when they found out?
Everyone was really positive, they were really nice. Word spread really quickly!
Did you watch yourself?
I: We watched it in Tutor and I also recorded it.
C: I thought my voice sounded so weird!
I: My mum really liked it and she’s shared it with my family
C: I watched it later on the iPlayer
What did you think about the recording itself?
I: I thought it would be one period, but it took a lot longer than I thought it would.
What was the best thing about the experience?
C: Just the whole experience
I: Putting my opinion on TV was the best thing
