Report by Amelia Hamblin - Year 7
5 Lucky students from years 7 and 8 - Joshua Platts, Libby Simmons, Amelia Hamblin, Tamsin Jarvis and Grace Nash got to meet Dick and Dom, of BBC TV’s Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow, at the wonderful, sunny Eden Project over half term. They were there to take part in Blue Peter - You Decide, a TV show which will see viewers choosing the new Blue Peter presenter.
Although sworn to secrecy on the matter of who went through we can tell you that the students made fruit costumes which had to look like grapes, strawberries, pineapples, apples and oranges and that each aspiring presenter worked with students to create these costumes. They had to make the most possible in 2 and a half hours and they did this an attempt to break a Guinness World Record.
Would you like to know more? Then watch the show! The first episode will be broadcast on Monday 24th June; 5:00 on CBBC. We think that the Richard Lander students will be in the episode on 8th July.
