I have just added the work Year 6 have been doing during Literacy. Children were shown a small clip of the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They were then asked to write a script for a radio broadcast where they either interviewed Charlie Bucket or the Shop keeper. Children were asked to think about their audience and use engaging vocabulary. Once the scripts were written, they 'peer edited' them and then spent two sessions in the ICT bay using Audacity to record their interviews. The children played back their performances and decided to rerecord if it was too loud, quiet etc.
The Year six teacher said that all children were enthusiastic and really enjoyed doing them.
