Year 3 trip to the BBC
Last Tuesday, the BBC welcomed our Year 3 pupils to the BBC Elstree studios, home to EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing among many other well-loved shows. The children were invited to paint a mural on the theme of “Why we should all love our earth, and what we can all do to help” onto the hoarding of the site for the rebuild of Albert Square. They were invited by the BBC at Elstree and Wates, the construction company who are working on the site improvements. The children showed great creativity throughout the morning, and produced a bright and interesting mural. The children were also given a tour of one of the EastEnders sets and shown where the programme is made. Eastenders team has been given the highest level of recognition in the media and arts industry for its efforts to create a sustainable production. Recently, the BBC has made big changes at their Elstree site to make it greener as part of a BBC wide goal of reducing impacts on the environment and using resources wisely.
