Our excited troupe of actresses are busy rehearsing ‘The Gingerbread Man’ ready to perform on Tuesday 12th July 2016 at 4.20pm.
Tuesday 26th April 2016
We are moving on to Drama for the rest of the term or Musical Theatre, as it should probably be called.
We started rehearsals today for ‘The Gingerbread Man’ to be performed in front of parents, grandparents, etc etc in July.
We had a great turn out today & managed to read through the whole script & learn one or two songs as well! Not bad at all for our first rehearsal!
There are still places available if you would like to come along Tuesdays 3.15-4.45pm.
I will attempt to put a few photos on here before too long….
Our trip to the Apple store on Thursday 18th Feb

Tomorrow will be a fantastic opportunity to improve our iMovie skills. Come with all your questions ready about improving stop-motion filming, saving & storing movies etc
Don’t forget to bring your packed lunch in a plastic bag, so that you can throw everything away after you have eaten it.
There is no need to bring any money as we won’t have time to spend it!
You can bring models, lego etc to film, but remember, it is YOUR responsibility! Mr Groves & I have enough on our plate looking after you & iPads!!!
Any questions, message me before 9pm today.
REMEMBER: FMD is moving back to a Thursday after half term – make sure you get your reply slip into the office by Wednesday LATEST!

Have a look at this super animated film (stop-motion) that Jack found. Have a look to see if you can find some more great examples of stop – motion film made by children on-line (ask your parent sot help!)
Tuesday 19th January 2016
We are learning a lot about stop-motion photography using lego. We had a great session today. Xander said it was the best film he had ever made! We all produce some excellent film footage.
Don’t forget to bring your lego next week & your headphones so that you can listen to the special effects and add extra excitement to your films!

Tuesday 21st September 2015
If anyone else would like to come & join us on a Thursday in the ‘Beautiful Room’ it is not too late! Â Just speak to Mrs McNally in the office.
We had an excellent first session last week starting to make Trailers (adverts for films). Making a trailer for a Spy film proved particularly popular & gave everyone a lot of laughs when we watched then on the Apple TV at the end of the session 😉
FINALLY all the videos made last year are available for anyone to watch!
Tuesday 9th December
Have a look at our adverts & our interviews:
Health warning: you may wish to turn the volume down before you watch this film!
Unfortunately the boys didn’t check the mic was recording properly before they started, so this version has no sound, but it still looks good, although they did do a final version with sound, but we can’t seem to track it down on the ipads…
We have continued to work on our ‘close – up’ skills making adverts which we hope to show soon.
We are working on making adverts currently and starting to use storyboards as we plan what we re going to film using VideoFX.
This week, we will start early (due to Parent Meetings in school) at 2.15pm & finish at 3.45pm – please remind your parents!) We will continue to film our ‘Interviews’, using Videofx. If you have chance to download Video fx at home (please check with parents first, but it is free) please explore how it works, that way you can just get on with the filming on Thursday. This will be our last filming session, however, you may get time to make a short advert as well, so think about props for both and bring them with you this week.
