Thistle Class on Westwood Radio

This afternoon Thistle class took to the airwaves with a live radio show on Westwood radio. Broadcasting to, literally the world, everyone had the opportunity to read some of their amazing writing from their Under the Sea topic and to step behind the microphone to have their first experience of live radio and how well they did.

With Lewis, Alice and May hosting the show, plenty of listeners – thank you everyone – and lots of texts from their audience, the children made me so proud with their confidence and professionalism. You can enjoy our fantastic afternoon again here and here are some behind the scenes photos from Thistle class studio!

Reception Pirate stories

Thistle Class have been enjoying the book The Night Pirates. In the story, Tom joins the rough, tough crew of Girl Pirates on an adventure. They sail to an island where they steal a treasure chest from a crew of lazy, scared Grown-up Pirates, led by Captain Patch. Using this story as inspiration and as a model, the children created their own pirate story. Here are the children from Reception telling you their stories.
