Welcome To Red Cloak Radio 2016/17!
Welcome back ready for Term 4! Last term's radio crews will continue through until Easter.
As always, anyone can contact us either by through the form above or at:
Get in touch if you have any announcements to make or just want a shout out.
If you would like a particular tune played during our shows let us know. If we don't have a copy of it we will get back to you. We can use any paid for track either by the children bringing a CD we can rip onto the system or, if you have paid to download an MP3, we can copy off a non apple device. Tracks will not appear on the web version of the broadcasts due to copyright restrictions but Antwone in Nightingales suggests listening on youtube along side the radio. Great idea Antwone!

Welcome to Red Cloak Radio for Term 5. We are doing something a little bit different for the summer terms. We are running taster sessions on Thursdays so more of our children can have the chance to sample life as a radio crew member. Each session, a child from each class will be shown the radio equipment, be interviewed and edit their own interview. At the end of the term we will put those together to create a package for you to hear so watch this space.
In the mean time, if you have any announcements you would like us to make or requests for music, please use the contact form above to get in touch. We look for to hearing from you.

Tyler, Muhtadee, Grace Jean, Spencer, Maizie and Skye have been practising their improvisation and editing skills this week. It was touch and go as to whether they would be ready for a live broadcast but they made it!
Thursday 2nd March 2017
This week, Crew 2 have been doing something a little bit different. They have recorded then edited three items which have been interspersed with live work. Their editing skills are really coming on and they are practising their precision mouse skills.
In Honour of World Book day and Shrove Tuesday, the music was "I love Reading" by Fabulous Lemon Drops and "Pancake Day" from ITV's Maid Marian. Both of these can be viewed on youtube.
Thursday 22nd February
Sickness has hit Red Cloak Radio this week with both Maizie and Grace Jean being away. Grace Jean chose the music during the planning session on Tuesday: Phaar-Far Bowvee, some Thai music we had used during the Around the World topic last year and Shawaddywaddy's Johnny, Remember Me; one for the olds!
Tyler, Muhtadee, Spencer and Skye did a great job filling in for them and we wish them back to school soon.
Thursday 2nd February
Tyler, Grace Jean, Spencer, Maizie and Skye have been working on their second show produced by Muhtadee.
