As part of the recordings for the show music was used to set the scene for each news report. Besides the task of recording a show the workshop also provided an opportunity for the children to learn new skills within radio production and presenting. Furthermore the pupils gained transferable personal skills in communicating and working effectively in teams and thinking creatively. The workshop also complimented the schools national literacy strategy.
