On Wednesday 4 October, Grangetown Primary School in Cardiff were joined by TV presenters Joe Tasker (CBBC's Saturday Mash-Up Live!, Content Creator) and Shanequa Paris (BBC Newsround, Radio 1). Joe and Shanequa hosted a special assembly and a presenting masterclass.
The children were also joined by Jon James, from local animation studio Hollowpixel. Jon joined in with the activities and gave creative advice to the pupils.
