QDFM aims high!!
A very special QDFM broadcast
It certainly has been a very busy week for us here at QDFM, as we have been busily preparing a podcast to send to our friends at BBC Radio Lancashire. You may recall that before Christmas we visited the studio, taking a tour and then taking part in a live broadcast along with the lovely ladies from the WI. It really was a very special morning. While we were there the sound technician, Chris Thornley, invited us to send them ‘some radio’, and that is what we have been busy preparing. A dedicated team of children have all worked very hard to contribute and produce a very special podcast, and later today you will be the very first hear. So, come back later and whilst you are enjoying a nice cup of tea, enjoy our amazing QDFM broadcast.
With a very special thank you to our amazing podcast team, who were specially selected by Mrs Burgon for their effort, attitude and hard work during our other podcast work.
They are –
The Introduction team – Hana, Sophie and Rabiyah
Mastermind Maths – Isaac and Ewan
School Visits – Emma and Rebecca
The Chicken Rappers – Kcy, Daniel and Lewis
The Sports Desk – Katie and David
Welcome to our latest podcast from our news reporters at QDFM. This term we have decided to podcast about the Year 6 theme, Crime and Punishment. All the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about this theme. The podcast will enable them to share what they have learnt in a concise and precise way. It really isn’t as easy as it looks. Some children have chosen to do adverts, others have been news reporters interviewing victims. They have all found it challenging to record using our software ‘Audacity’ but it has certainly increased their confidence in the art of performance.
We hope you enjoy listening to the podcast, which is not only very informative but also gives you an insight into all the wonderful things that are happening here at Queen’s Drive Primary School.

Here at Queen’s Drive the pod-casting studios the children’s ideas have been flowing yet again! We have rappers and poets performing their work. The children have shown skills of organisation and co-operation when they have been preparing their scripts. Interestingly, the children found it challenging when recording their scripts. They had to consider their audience, how to speak into the microphone and most importantly trying not to be self conscious in front of others.
Arjun and Nishan – Sweeney Advertisement
Kaidon and Kayden – A Sweeney Todd advert
Luke and Jake – Mrs Lovett’s bakery and Sweeney Todd’s barber’s shop advertisement
Bilal and Arran – Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett Poem
Emma and Rabiyah – Mrs. Lovett’s Cookery Programme
