Wood Street Project

In March 2016, having studied Wood Street and Old Town in Swindon, the Juniors of Bishopstone Primary School visited Wood Street for a morning.

In that time they interviewed shopkeepers, residents, visitors and even a passing policeman! Having the questions that they had prepared in advance at the ready, and benefiting from the virtual exploring of the street that had been undertaken using Google maps, the children seized the chance to maximize their visit and to focus on the aspects of life in urban Swindon that they were most genuinely interested in.

Upon their return the Juniors put their sound editing skills to use using the Audacity computer program to create their own commentary pieces - which will are featured below on this page.


This is our edited radio program:
