Class trip to The Kinema In The Woods - 10.2.14

On Monday 10th February 2014, we visited The Kinema in the Woods in Woodhall Spa to learn more about the history of film and to watch the new animation 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman'. It was fascinating to see the old fashioned film equipment and to see demonstrations of some of the old techniques we have been learning about.

Making films 21 Worm's eye view

We started this term's film making project by exploring different camera angles. We used high and low angles, as well as close up, medium, aerial and worm's eye shots. We then used a range of sentence starters to write interesting sentences about the photographs we had taken.

 

Faith's group wrote: 'Looking down from my comfortable chair, I could see Faith reading a high quality book.' They thought about the perspective of the writer and allowed the reader to imagine the scene by explaining where Faith was in relation to the writer.

 

Other sentences started with 'Close up....', 'Far beneath me...', 'In the distance...' amongst others. We are now going to try to use these in our writing on a regular basis to add extra details for the reader.

Writing

Writing 1 'The BFG' working wall

We have been reading and writing about Roald Dahl's 'The BFG' in literacy, as our focus has been stories set in imaginary worlds. We have been thinking about how we can create an effect on the reader using similes and powerful adjectives.

 

We used drama to show different similes and think about the image that we created in the reader's mind, then we transferred these ideas into our writing. The results were magnificent! Photographs to follow...

Picture 1
We used still images from the film 'Up' to describe the characters and settings. Some of Class 2 planned their stories with members of Class 1 to share ideas and expertise. We then discussed the ideas as a class and wrote the rest of the story independently.
