Linking NRPS to the wider community
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis takes part in the first recording of the Nancy Reuben Primary Podcast September 2019
Welcome to our new Nancy Reuben Podcast launched September 2019. On our podcasts, you will hear how the children are using technology to engage with organisations and people from across the community. We know that people as far away as USA, France and Israel are listening to our podcasts.
Our children are briefed about and research the person and the organisation being interviewed and then prepare any questions they like to ask. A small group of children representing different classes is chosen each time to participate in the podcast interview. The children prepare the introduction to the podcast.
