  • Builds creativity.
  • Research skills are refined and put into practice.

Red Shift Radio Open Day Visit

As part of our 'real life learning' Acton Radio Team recently visited our local station, Red Shift Radio, to co-host their lunch time broadcast.

We had a fantastic time with Dan, talking about a range of topics including local news, favourite sweets and even helping create the ultimate music playlist!

Coming Soon

Acton Radio Team will be taking part in the 'Junior School Run' at Red Shift Radio. This 4 week experience will provide the children with the opportunity to develop their presenting skills and teach us about the technical and planning elements involved in creating a successful broadcast.
Keep an eye out for updates on our progress!
