They designed their own newspaper spreads and created catchy news headlines. Children were also able to look the part by designing their own news reporter lanyards, which they could then take home.

Honing their investigative skills, families were encouraged to take part with their children searching for news clues around the centre, for a chance to win a journalism-themed bundle.

Centre manager, Jonathan Poole said: "We hope everyone enjoyed the activities provided over the half term as children were encouraged to get creative during the week.

"The journalism theme has been a huge success and we 
are excited to launch 
Roaming Reporting in the coming weeks with Romford Recorder and Time 107.5 FM Radio."
