Round Diamond Rocks Podcast

Round Diamond Rocks Podcast

 

In the Summer term of 2021 pupil parliament analysed a parent voice survey linked to the cultural capital of the children within Round Diamond School. After much discussion and a vote, Pupil Parliament agreed unanimously on the idea of a school podcast as a way of sharing a range of news, interviews, celebrations and music. The children chose the logo for the podcast and decided on what would be included in each one. In every podcast there is an interview with a member of staff, news, sporting news, an interview with a member of the community, celebrations, a joke, a song suggestion to get dancing to and a motivational quote to get every one thinking. Pupil parliament also thought the podcast would be a fantastic opportunity for the children of Round Diamond to build their confidence in speaking in front of others and a way to include children from across the school. The podcast is recorded throughout the term and posted at the end of each half term. Listen to the podcast below.
