DJ gets Bath pupils in a spin
Primary school pupils have been getting a music masterclass from an up-and-coming DJ.
J Cassidy, a second year music technology student at the City of Bath College, paid a visit to Widcombe Junior School to round off their arts week.
He transformed the school hall into an impromptu nightclub for the morning and taught the 240 youngsters some tricks on the decks.
The college's head of music technology Mark Smithers was also on hand to explain some of the principles of sound and mixing while the action was being broadcast on a screen in the school hall.

After the session the children said they had all had fun learning about the different styles of music.
Ten-year-old Nell said: "It was absolutely brilliant, I got to find out how DJ decks work and got to mix my own tracks with J."
Fraya, also ten, added: "It was so loud it made your whole body shake. We all got to have a dance and see how to mix our own music."
Widcombe Juniors' music co-ordinator Sarah Brown thanked the college for their involvement and said it had been enjoyed by everyone who took part.
She said: "I hope we can work together to make this an annual event.
"The children have never taken part in anything like a DJ workshop before and they all absolutely loved it."
College music lecturer Ginny Saunders organised the event and said she hoped it could be repeated again in the future.
She said: "It was undoubtedly the strangest gig we've organised yet, but also one of the most fun."
