Radio Club Group 2 Session 1

This afternoon we started our new radio club as every term we like to give all childrenĀ in the school the opportunity to develop their broadcasting skills by working together to learn the techniques and have fun with school radio. Our latest 10 children to come along were just fantastic and worked together so well from the start.

We spent today getting used to talking into a microphone and listening to our own voices through our headphones, which is always something quite unusual to begin with! By adding in some jingles to punctuate our speech we were then able to begin practicing our handovers. Everyone worked hard and we had a lot of fun along the way too, which is what it is all about. Next week we will be taking our skills on even further and develop our intros and outros. Here is our very first recording together. Well done to Sophie on the jingles and Henry on the mics. If you enjoyed the group’s work, please leave them a comment! Enjoy.

World Book Day radio show

Today we broadcast once again live online to the community and the world on World Book Day. What strikes me is that with every passing week and show, the children become even more confident, more professional and put together a show that is just superb. Today’s was no exception, with some lovely features including the usual school news, but also some fabulous world news from Charlie and fantastic BBC 500 word performances live in the studio from Oscar and Finn.

With a focus on Orchid class blog and their myths and legends posts – orchid.westwoodblogs.org if you fancy having a read – and all the weather you need to know for the weekend, this was another example of top class school radio broadcasting. here is the show to listen again:
