Primary Radio Stars

On Wednesday and Thursday four of our budding stars had the opportunity to become Radio Stars. Wycombe Abbey has teamed up with Changzhou radio station to deliver a three minute briefing each morning for the next month.

Rosy, Della, Ethan and Sophy all did a wonderful job. They received on the job training from two accomplished radio presenters and they spoke in both English and Chinese with clear pronunciation and pitch. This is not bad when you think that there might well be 6 million listeners in Changzhou if everyone has their radios tuned in!

Although nerve racking the four pupils, they really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to do it again in the near future. They are recording some of the basics in English with a little Chinese history behind it. 

An area we pride ourselves on at Wycombe Abbey is the confidence of our pupils. Facilitating the opportunity for the children to be on the grand stage in front of a large audience is something you can only accomplish if you practice.

We are very proud of our Grade 5s, well done!
