Seekers Podcast


2KL worked with The Seekers in a series of workshops in school where the children helped devise the podcast: 'Flushed Down The Toilet!'

The children's ideas were recorded and are part of the podcast too.


This is the email Mrs Lamb received:


It was so fantastic to work with Hillcrest on co-creating a podcast episode with The Seekers. Thanks for having us work with your wonderful class Kim. It was a total joy. 


Exciting news - the final episode is released on all podcast platforms on 10th May. 


They can listen to the episode here -


The drawings they did of their favourite scenes are here:




  • THE READ-A-NATOR. When your child has read at home, simply hit the button and click your child's class to add a point to their class tally. The class with the most points at the end of the term will win a treat.
