Share Your Lockdown Experience - two illustrated students, PCR logo and e4education logo

As we see schools re-open their doors for a new academic year, PCR FM is launching a podcast competition for Peterborough based schools to share their personal lockdown experiences.

Your schools' podcast should portray your students' experience of the COVID-19 outbreak and could include the answers to questions such as:

  • How did lockdown affect you?
  • How did you keep in touch with your friends?
  • What did you do with your families?
  • How did you keep busy?
  • How did your community come together?
  • How did you find remote learning? 

what you need to do

You’ve got a maximum of 7 minutes to share your lockdown experiences as a small group, a class or the whole school.

We can only receive one entry per school so make sure you choose your best entry! Be creative and make it stand out from other entries.

To get your staff and students interested in the event, why not share our social media posts (you can find us on all channels; @e4education) or pop some of our posters around your school? 

judging and winners

The entries will be judged in two categories – Primary (Key Stages 1 & 2) and Secondary (Key Stages 3 to 4) by a panel of local judges.

If you are one of the two winning schools, you will receive a visit from Breakfast Show host Kev Lawrence, your podcast will be played live on the PCR FM Breakfast Show and you will receive an Amazon voucher for £250.

All entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Fun
  • Distinctive
  • Conveys the emotion of the children
  • Professionalism

Be sure to listen to the PCR FM Breakfast Show for top tips from Kev!
