Portable Radio

This is a podcast made by students in grades 5 and 6. Since our classes are in the portables, we thought the name, 'Portable Radio' would be a great name for our show. Our school, A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School, is located in Stittsville, Ontario, Canada. We are a part of the Ottawa Carleton District School Board.

2015 Snow Clothes Challenge
February 2015

Ms. Cassidy’s class (ages 6 and 7) in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, challenged classes to the “2015 Snow Clothes Challenge”. We decided to give it a try.

Season 9 P.O.V. #4 [2:21]
January 2015

Last week, in England, a five year old boy named Alex was given a bill for about $30 because he didn’t go to another boy’s birthday party. He had already made plans to spend the day with his grandparents and couldn’t find the information to tell birthday hosts he wasn’t able to go.

Should Alex have to pay for missing the birthday party?

Last Friday, an official in the National Hockey League said they were probably going to allow advertising on players’ jerseys. Some experts think this could earn each team in the NHL at least four million dollars a year.

Should the NHL allow advertising on their player’s jerseys? Listen to our opinions.

We Challenge You: Cup Pyramid
June 2014

This is our last challenge of the year. We had to practice a little before videotaping it.  We would love to see other classes try it out.  We are more interested in seeing students working together to building the pyramid – your time is not important.  Although, you are welcome to try! Let us know if you make a video by leaving a comment telling us where to find it.
