Some of us from Year 5 and 6 became interested in podcasting and setting up a website School Radio Station. We are very busy with lessons in school thus it is difficult to work on a project like this in the normal school day. So we attended an after school club once a week to learn about the new computer software and equipment that we will be using to produce our shows. Our first shows are now ready and please click on the head-phone icons in the show details to download and listen. You will need a player, such as Windows Media Player or Quicktime, installed on your computer to play the mp3 files we use. As the files are quite large you really need to have a broadband connection – please be patient – the shows are worth waiting for.
At the start the DJs downloaded some podsafe music (music which the artists kindly make available free of charge and free of copyright) and linked this to the personal avatar images that we have chosen for the club. We hope you like it and you can listen by scrolling down and then clicking on the Team's images shown below.
We have produced a number of shows now for our friends in school. In the meantime we would really like to hear what you think about our shows. You can e-mail us by clicking on the e-mail icon below and then typing EDENfm in the box that says "your childs class" before typing your message. Thanks for listening.
Remembrance. In planning and producing their Remembrance Day podcast the Radio Team wanted to include the local community in Edenbridge, as well as the children in school. Therefore they thought of the reasons why the War Memorial at Edenbridge Hospital was built and have included the names of some of the people who are remembered on that monument. They hope that listeners to their podcast will take time to think about the true meaning of remembrance.
The Tiger an Endangered Animal. As a result of what they learnt about the endangered Polar Bear, whilst working on the Arctic Voice Project, the DJs have been researching facts about other animals under threat. In this show DJ Skullduggery and DJ Superstar tell you what they have learnt about the Tiger, recount some amazing facts and explain the meaning of some new words.They also introduce you to EDENtv.

The Arctic Voice Project. Some of our children were fortunate to be able to attend an Arctic Voice Project update and workshops held at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent. DJ EA and DJ Superstar interviewed Mr Glenn Morris, the Project Leader, and one of the other children attending. Listen to their really interesting broadcast and hear what they think we can all do to help save the Arctic environment. Log on to the Arctic Voice website at www.arcticvoice.org to find out the latest news.
The Arctic Voice Project. DJ Skull and DJ TJ joined in a media workshop to show new friends from Slade School, Tonbridge how they use Audacity software to produce their radio shows. The children from Slade then produced short "infomercials" to highlight the serious effect that climate change is having on the life of the polar bear. Listen to the DJ's account of the day and the "infomercials" that were recorded.

Eco Show. One of the DJs is also a member of the Eco Council and has been telling the other DJs how we will build on our Eco School status. They all thought that this would make an interesting and informative programme that would help everybody in the local community to be involved. They enjoyed researching and preparing scripts and carrying out their first interviews. This part of the production they classed as really "cool".
