Film week rehearsing our scripts - day 3

posted 18 May 2017, 06:56 by Sue Criminale   [ updated 18 May 2017, 07:18 ]

To enable our scripts to make sense, we had to act out each scene to make sure everything flowed.  We found that we had to rewrite several scenes until we were happy with the final draft, ready to show Paul and his team.


Film week meeting Paul Press and his team - day 3

posted 18 May 2017, 04:08 by Sue Criminale   [ updated 18 May 2017, 07:07 ]

Today we met Paul and his team and we shared an assembly together. Paul explained exactly what was going to happen in film week and he showed us the equipment that we will be using to film our masterpieces.    We then had the opportunity to practice using the equipment, under Paul's direction and made our own mini scene.



Film Week Preparation - Day 2

posted 16 May 2017, 12:02 by Daniel Trinder

Having agreed on a story to adapt into a film, we started the day story boarding it in Post It notes. Once all of the group members knew the story, they created storyboards to help them share their ideas with Paul from Off-Shoot films. Half of each group hand drew a storyboard whilst the other half used a software package to create theirs. The two sub-groups had to work well together to make sure both versions of the storyboards told the same story.

Here are some of the groups working on their storyboards.


And here are examples of the storyboards produced.


Film Week Preparation - Day 1

posted 16 May 2017, 11:49 by Daniel Trinder

After reviewing some previous Film Week films made by pupils who used to be at the school, this week the children began to plan their own story ideas. We remember the advice the 'Two Steves' had given us and used this to plan our own stories.

After lunch, the children got into their film crews and shared ideas. Next, they chose an idea to take forward to day two. 

Here are the children making their choices in their groups.

We used this webpage to revise our knowledge of parts of plants and their functions. It was very useful and would be good to return to and try the quiz.

20 Minute Collage Challenge

posted 25 Apr 2017, 23:58 by Daniel Trinder

In art today we looked at the collage technique over layering cut or torn paper to create effects or images. Having looked at and discussed several examples of artists work, we had a 20 minute challenge to create our own collages using only scrap paper. The children worked hard to create some impressive artwork in their books.


Dragon's Den - How To Pitch

posted 27 Mar 2017, 09:45 by Daniel Trinder

Thank-you so much to Mrs Sennett (Mother of Maddie) who came to share her business expertise with Year 6 this afternoon. Mrs Sennett works to support businesses launch their ideas and she visited this afternoon (as part of the Dragon's Den project) to tell the children all about different phases of business development and help them to prepare for the Dragon's Den event on Friday morning.


The children were furiously taking notes and will use what they learned to develop their marketing campaigns and improve their pitches over the rest of the week ahead.

A big well done and thank-you to Emily, Rhiannon, Oliwia and Skye (not pictured) who made and sold bracelets to raise money for Comic Relief. The bracelets were made in a range of colours and sizes for different people and the girls managed to raise about £10 for this excellent cause.
