We always look for exciting ways that we can expand on the work we do…
On Tuesday the 18th of February, Joe Chambers from the BBC television show ‘The Rhyme Rocket‘ will be visiting our school. The event will take place in the school hall at various times during the day.
(Years 1 – 4)– The Literacy Show
The aim of the show is to promote literacy and encourage children to engage and have fun with creative wordplay through interactive performance. It’s an upbeat show full of songs and comedy and has been received immensely well by schools across the UK as a unique learning tool to supplement the literacy curriculum. Lots of laughter, lots of creative learning. It is about an hour in length. There is no filming involved.
(Years 5 – 6)– Television Workshop
For the older children, we run our TV workshop. This is a chance for pupils to meet the team and learn about the television industry whilst gaining insight into potential jobs for the future. We talk about our direct experience of working in the industry and discuss how children may look to get into a similar field later down the line. We set up a film production studio inside the school hall and give the students job roles before filming a few scenes. This is followed by a Q and A.
