Film Making with BLAST

Film Making with BLAST

The whole school really enjoyed Film Making with Helen Flannagan. The children decided on what theme they would like to create a script for, the characters we would use, the plot, the climax and the solution. The junior pupils enjoyed shadow puppetry and it blended in great with our finished film.

We welcomed Therese to our school to enhance our ability in using the Stop Motion Studio! The children came up with some great animations. Well done to all!

We also enjoyed a very fun and informative presentation from TY students on the effects of too much time on Technology! They have set us a challenge to cut down on our devices and we accept this challenge! They will be back in a few weeks to ensure we have tried our best to do other activities in order to minimise our screen time.
