We invite your class to become filmmakers for the day as they write, record and edit their own documentary, teleporting themselves to another time or place through the magic of green screen technology. Prepare your own topic by coordinating with our tutors in advance or choose from: the solar system, the human body, the ancient Greeks, the Mayans, the Romans, the Shang Dynasty or the Vikings.
Inspired by the BBC’s Own It resources, pupils will discuss and research the key online safety and digital literacy issues affecting young children in their age group. For year 6 pupils, these will include the issues they may face as they make the transition into secondary education. Pupils will work together in groups to create a series of vlog-style films promoting positive and healthy online behaviour.
use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly. Recognise acceptable/unacceptable online behaviour, be discerning in evaluating digital content.
elaborate and explain their understanding and ideas.
Pupils will tell an animated story, using iPad apps to bring hand-drawn characters and settings to life. This workshop can be adapted to suit a range of age groups and will include phase-appropriate curriculum content. If you would like us to fit the session around a topic or story your class is learning about, please let us know when you make your booking.
