10 children from Year 6 took part in a trip to Global to record a radio ad for BCPS and WCPS open days. The children are the marketing reps for their Global Enterprise Projects and were able to explore and discuss what advertising and marketing meant when creating adverts.
They started their trip with a tour of the Global building meeting various people in the office and getting to view the production studios. They were then taken through to the ‘Heart Devon’ studio with Matt and Victoria and were able to ask questions to the presenters. Matt talked the children through what they do and also showed how he can link songs that he was playing, live on air!
The group were then taking into Global’s conference room where they were able to discuss what things they liked about the school and what they think should be in the advert. Many children spoke about how “helpful, supportive and caring” the teachers are. The wide range of clubs they take part in, such as climbing, sailing and golf and the Microsoft Surfaces they use in the school.
It was then on to the recording studios where the children got to each wear headphones and stand in front of the mic ready for their parts in the ad! Each child took their turns at recording and producing their clip and was able to listen back to it over the speakers. The children were all excited (and some a bit nervous!) about their roles but performed brilliantly.
On returning to school all of the children said that they “really enjoyed it and would love to work there!”
The ads have been live since Thursday 9th November.
