Ganges Spring 2018

On this week’s broadcast Ganges (year 3) talk about their visit to a Roman Amphitheatre in London and what they saw there. For the science segment they tell us about bones and the different kinds of skeletons found in nature. Do you know which part of the body has the most bones?

They also talk about their new blogs and reflect on how to comment online appropriately. Finally, the children reflect on the learning they find most useful and what they think about Pancake Day. Plus – what does their perfect day look like?

Music in the broadcast this week:
Hercules – Aaron Neville
Bones – Radiohead
Computer Liebe – Kraftwerk
Breezin’ – George Benson

And finally listen to the children talk about being resilient and Miss Sawh’s choice for our Desert Island Disc feature.
