Year 5 Radio Team Visit Express FM
Our thanks to Ellie and Darren at Express FM for hosting our Year 5 radio team
Yesterday Year 5 visited Express FM down at Portsmouth University. We were kindly hosted by Ellie, Operations Manager at the station. She gave up time from her busy schedule to answer a number of questions from our pupils about running a radio show, and even gave them the opportunity to have a go at introducing songs.
We were then treated to a tour of the university building, where we saw students busily working in a number of different departments. It was a fantastic experience for our pupils to get a glimpse of university life.
Thanks also to Darren for doing a shout-out to Flying Bull live on air!
Once we returned to school, I asked the team for a bit of feedback:
"I enjoyed seeing a live radio show, and I could use this to help me make a better show at school"
"I really liked Ellie's advice to smile when you're talking so you sound better"
"I really enjoyed the part where we got a shout-out!"
"I liked seeing the photography room because I like photography and it was really cool"
