Hove Junior were the first school to manage a broadcast. An accident on the A27 meant that they lost an hour and they did incredibly well to pick up on the day. However, there may be a few inaccuracies in this presentation as there was so little time to check scripts. Hove Junior did incredibly well to pioneer the project and we hope you enjoy their broadcast - introduced here by the Director of the Railway Land Project, Dr John Parry.

I felt it was worth posting this comment by the teacher from Hove Junior who sent me this e-mail:
We had the most wonderful day with you and the kids were full of it yesterday. I did an assembly for the rest of year 4 and we told them all about it and showed them the website. Also we did the follow up activity designing our own pond creatures yesterday afternoon and they have come up with some brilliant ideas!!! Thanks again for such a great day.
