This week has seen the first recording sessions of Radio Winterfold. The Radio room has been equipped with state of the art equipment and software, allowing teachers and parents to produce high quality radio/audio programmes.
As part of our Year 8 Leavers’ Programme, pupils interviewed Mr Mitchell, recorded a ghost story and produced a funny facts slot. Following their performance of Archie Dobson’s War, Year 6 had fun recording the radio play.
The potential of this room is vast, both as a live recording space for pupils and as an editing suite. Key ICT skills can be honed, as well as essential skills in public speaking and interviewing.
The next plan is to allow the radio site to go live on the internet later this year. We hope that you will then all be able to tune in 24 hours a day!
Many thanks to FOW for assisting with the backing of the project and to Mr Price, Mr Loughton and the Winterfold community for making this exciting vision a reality.
