Breakfast Show - Episode 19 - 18.6.18

Another superb show from our Breakfast Show team. Broadcast, as always, live from the studios of Westwood Radio, this is the only way to start your week. With class news and topical features, plus outstanding hosting from James and top presenting from all of our broadcasters; we even had a live caller today - thanks Andy!


Episode 29 - 2017/18 - Father's Friday - 15.6.18

Today was a very special show for Westwood Radio as we welcomed our dads into the studio as part of our Father's Friday celebrations. With some outstanding hosting from Billy and James and the usual high standard of presenting from all of our broadcasters, this deserves a listen again. Huge thanks to all of the dads for joining us and for making the afternoon show such fun!


Breakfast Show - Episode 18 - 11.6.18

Our breakfast show team are back with a cracker of a show to kick start your week. Bringing together school news, weather and life outside of school, the confidence in these young broadcasters is tremendous. Expertly hosted by James, but without a live caller today, this was another show to be proud of.


Westwood Talk - Ep23 - 10.6.18

Westwood Talk returns for Term 6 with another look back at the week gone by. Including class news, another interview for our Oral History Project, a very special visit from Alan Stubbersfield, Director of Education in Wiltshire and news on the brilliant Westwood Scarecrow Trail. Press play and catch up on everything that's happening at our fabulous school!


Episode 28 - 2017/18 - 8.6.18

Group 2 was in full flow this afternoon as they broadcast another sparkling show live to the world. With the long awaited return of Oscar to the team, he took straight to hosting duties, with him and Ellie delivering a masterclass in education radio. The usual mix of top stories and features as well as great music and even a live caller, beautifully handled live on air by Ellie. A must listen show, if only to marvel at the confidence of our brilliant broadcasters.


Word on the Street - Episode 3 - 7.6.18

The boys are back with another great show that focuses on writing about what we enjoy and enjoying writing. With everything scripted in advance by the team and hosts Oscar and Josh taking control for only the second time, this is another example of the power of education radio in developing confidence. Well done everyone!


Westwood Talk - Ep22 - 27.5.18

A bumper episode of Westwood Talk this week to round up the final week of Term 5. With so much to look back on, including the cluster schools swimming gala, another Oral History Interview and our very exciting Friday, which included a live BBC Wiltshire outside broadcast from our school, sports day and a Race for Life! All packaged into a podcast for your listening pleasure.


Interview with BBC Wiltshire Sport's Marie Indge - 25.5.18

We were delighted to be joined by top BBC Wiltshire sports broadcaster Mare Indge, who very kindly gave Charlie and Ellie the chance to be professional sports reporters and present with her live on air during the Breakfast show with Ben Prater from our school. Afterwards, Marie very kindly gave us some time to interview her and Daniel, who often reads our sports, asked her what it was like to be a sports broadcaster and what advice Marie would give our young up and coming presenters....


Interview with BBC Wiltshire's Ben Prater - 25.5.18

We had the pleasure of welcoming Ben Prater and his BBC Breakfast Show Team to our school as part of their #stepintosummer campaign, where they broadcast live from the playground and what a morning we had! Afterwards, Ben kindly gave us some time to be interviewed and Luke asked him all about his life in radio and advice for our broadcasters who may want a career in broadcasting. Thank you, Ben!


Thistle EYFS Pirate Stories - 23.5.18

Thistle Class have been enjoying the book The Night Pirates. In the story, Tom joins the rough, tough crew of Girl Pirates on an adventure. They sail to an island where they steal a treasure chest from a crew of lazy, scared Grown-up Pirates, led by Captain Patch. Using this story as inspiration and as a model, the children created their own pirate story. Here are the children from Reception telling you their stories.


Breakfast Show - Episode 17 - 21.5.18

The final breakfast show of this term and the team went out on a high. More great hosting from James, top scripts and superb presenting from our talented young broadcasters made for THE best way to start your week. No live caller today (boo!) but we're hoping for more after half term.


Westwood Talk - Ep21 - 20.5.18

A bumper edition of Westwood Talk this week as we look back on SATs, TWO Oral History interviews, which were just fabulous and a look ahead to the Westwood Scarecrow trail, Sports Day and BBC Wiltshire live from our school later this week. A busy time but hugely exciting and lots to share and reflect on in the latest Westwood Talk.


Episode 27 - 2017/18 - 18.5.18

This week on Westwood Radio we were delighted to be joined in the studio by Helen Hopkins from the Westwood Scarecrow - @wwoodscarecrow - Trail committee who gave a fabulous interview to Ellie and Alice and stayed for the whole show! We also talked SATs, class news, BBC Step into Summer and also put into practice some of the skills that our great friend of the show Russell Prue taught us earlier in the week. Another great way to start your weekend in the sun...


Word on the Street - Episode 2 - 17.5.18

The Word on the Street team are back with another stunning piece of education radio. With their own scripts and two new hosts in Oscar and Josh, sit back and enjoy the confidence, resilience and off-script chat and humour as you listen to the development in these amazing children in just a week.


Breakfast Show - Episode 16 - 14.5.18

Today's breakfast show was a SATs shout out special, with messages of encouragement for our amazing Year 6 children in their breakfast club, preparing for their tests. With James spending time with his friends preparing, Mr Rockey took over hosting duties as a one off treat (for him!) this morning and everyone presented superbly with well written scripts, superb intonation and bags of energy. The only way to start your week!


Westwood Talk - Ep20 - 13.5.18

A bumper edition of Westwood Talk this week with SO much to look back on and celebrate from our school. Plenty of class news, our Word on the Street radio show and much more from our Oral History Project. Plus, we look ahead to SATs and even discuss a very interesting Westwood Dawn Chorus walk that took place recently. Something for everyone!


Episode 26 - 2017/18 - 11.5.18

Today's show was full of more of the quality broadcasting you have come to expect from our talented young people. TWO unscripted live discussion features with the team, superb hosting, which was completely unphased by a technical hitch part way through and plenty of unscripted chat and banter, demonstrating the confidence that our wonderful children have behind the microphone.


Lisa Barry Interview - 10.5.18

In the studio today we were delighted to be joined by Lisa Barry, who spoke with Daniel about the wonderful Westwood Dawn Chorus walk they went on a couple of weeks ago. This was a chance to listen to a fine selection of birds at the break of day in their natural habitat and identify them with some help from an ornithological expert. You can head some of the sounds captured by Joe Gidley, a Sound Recordist who accompanied the group, at the end of the interview. The birds you will hear, in...


Word on the Street - Episode 1 - 10.5.18

Today saw the beginning of a new show on Westwood Radio. Our boys writing group, who have only worked together twice before, put together and presented a stunning show using scripts that they had chosen and written themselves. A wonderful opportunity to develop confidence and resilience in writing and I am sure that this is the first of many live shows to come. Well done Reggie and Billy - excellent hosting!


Westwood Talk - Ep19 - 7.5.18

On a sunny Bank Holiday Monday, I recorded the very latest update from our wonderful school in the last week. Class news, our stunning boys writing and broadcasting group and an update on our ever growing Oral History Project are all included, as well the latest from our involvement in the Step into Summer campaign.
