As we move towards the end of the Dance E-jay project we’ve started to think about selling our album.      We need to make lots of money to have a party, so we decided to make a radio advert.   We listened to a few TV adverts and tried to pick out some phrases that were thought would sound good on the radio.   It was very funny especially when one of the adverts started with ‘Come on you Nutters!’

We took a selection from the tracks that we made in Dance E-jay and then recorded our own adverts over the top using Audacity.  We tried to use some of the phrases that we heard and even added.   Here are our results, which would get you to buy the album?   Remember everything you hear has been made by a nine year old!

Reece and Daniel

Grace, Chantelle and Scott

Angel and Josie-Leigh

    Brilliant adverts that put a smile on my face – had my hands in the air!
    Will play them to my Year 6 class tomorrow as they too have been looking at adverts – not for albums though for Mario kart on the Wii – will be great to compare work.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I am going to listen to the recordings later as it is 7:30 am here when I read this post and possibly 10:30pm where you are. It is time for me to get ready for school in Australia. However, I love your approach and think of all the concepts that students have learnt along the way – the party involves budgeting. The radio adverts will need to be good to ensure they will sell when placed on the cd, to produce the income for the party. Many skills will be learnt with using technology and audio communication. Students have an authentic task with a real audience. Plus the students have reflected on ads that are on TV with all the visuals involved and had to adapt them to just audio for radio adverts. Hope you will keep us updated on the progress of this project.

    Great adverts! Some really good lines to encourage the potential purchasers and I like the way you used some of the features of the ads you listened to first. Very catchy background music!

    These are excellent adverts. Well done everyone.

    Before becoming a teacher I used to make radio commercials and background music for television shows, so I know how much hard work you have put in to these.

    Keep up the hard work.

    “Come on you nutters!” Love it. Even just that out sells the most expensive of advertising agency ads.
    Well done to your crew for their original ideas.
