Planning - The Five Ws

You already have your story but just remember the Five Ws

What - What is the story? Get the facts right before starting your report.
Why - Why is the story important to your audience? 
Which points do you need to focus on to get their interest?
Who - Who is involved? Think about who will be able to tell their sides of the story in 
an interesting way. Make sure they're available to film when you need them. Remember,
 if you want to film anyone under the age of 18, you must get permission from their parent or
 guardian. If you are filming at school, in school time, this permission can be given by the head teacher.
Where Where is the story happening, and where is the best place to film?
 If you're shooting outside of school, you may need to get permission first.
When Has the story already happened, or is it about to happen? 
If there's going to be a significant event you want to report on, make sure you get there on time!

Make sure you have planned well........
Introduction - This is where the reporter starts to explain the story. 
Don't make it too long, keep it short and snappy.
First interview - The first person you talk to will give their opinion on what is happening, 
and how it affects them.
Second interview - You need to talk to someone with a different opinion, to provide balance.
Extra shots - These show the audience more about the place and the people in the story. 
They make the report more interesting.
Conclusion This will be the reporter's sign-off, where they summarise the outcome,
 or possible outcomes, of the story.
