Next week, Bowling Park will make an appearance on BBC Radio 4 as part of a Born in Bradford programme called ‘My World, My Class’.
Pupils in Year 3 worked closely with the Born in Bradford team, by using Samsung phones for research. They worked with Sue Mitchell, who taught the children how to use phones as recorders. They were also inspired by Ian Beesley, a BiB artist, to use the phones as cameras and to take photos showing their lives, beginning with the food they eat.
The programme gives great insights into life in Bradford; what it is like to come to Britain not speaking English, what it is like to be British born and making friends with children from round the world and what life is like with step-relatives and extended families. It is both funny and moving and a positive picture of life in Bradford.
We hope you can listen to the show when it airs.
