Broadcasting business 

As part of #rosendalemediaweek17 year five have been learning about what makes a good radio package. We were lucky enough to have BBC World Service producer Tim Allen come in to talk to us about his experiences and share with us what it takes to make a radio show. We’ll be putting his tips to good use later this week when we make our own broadcasts. 

#rosendalemediaweek17

Next week will be our second Rosendale Media Week. The theme this year is “bringing stories to life” and the children will be creating articles for the school magazine and multimedia content themed around the books in Rosendale Book Club.

We will be looking at how stories are brought to life using different media, such as animation, film, radio and digital art.
In our class we will be making podcasts using the radio studio.
We also have some very exciting visitors coming to school from one of the most famous story tellers, Disney.
You can follow the action on twitter by searching for #rosendalemediaweek17 and checking our class blog.
The school magazine, Rosendale Voice, will be out at the end of the summer term. It will be jam packed with lots of fabulous writing and art, as well as links to all the multimedia content we make next week.
