In Mathematics the children were challenged to choose a container and then use their measuring and 2D net making skills to recreate the container in 3D as accurately as possible. Marvel at their accuracy below!

We have been learning about what it means to be a good digital citizen and creating our own presentations to explain this to others in the school.

Film Week

After hours of storyboarding, scripting and rehearsals, Film Week 2017 is finally here. The films are 'in the can' and ready to be edited but it won't be until the GAFTAs in July that the children will see their final films. Until then, here is a tiny glimpse from the set of one of the films.

Quality Work

We have been thinking about our qualities and realising that we often don't give ourselves credit for all the great things we do. The children worked together to make lists of all their individual qualities.
They used their ideas as a basis for creating a piece of art for display. Here are some examples of the children's work.

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.
