Retrospective Music Videos

After a discussion about the meaning of retrospective, I asked the kids to create an imaginative music video using the last three years' video archives. They were encouraged to combine cartooning with green-screen video and still pictures; and add transition effects and voice-overs to narrate their life at Western Heights School over the past few Years.

We hope you like these examples.

Presentation Videos Starting to Look Good

The class has been assembling the videos to argue for a stadium to be built at school. Some are more completed than others. The children created their own music tracks using Garage Band.

Term 4

Room 18 have had a great start to Term 4.  We are very lucky to have Mr Jackson, our student teacher, who will be joining us for the first 5 weeks.  We have an exciting term ahead with our Inquiry focus on 'Festivals'.  This will end with our own Middle and Senior School festival later in the term.

Here are some of Inquiry projects from last term:
