Media Arts ‘Oscars’ 2011

Badgers’ Class has been having such a lot of fun making films during the last year.  We ran an Animation Club after school led by Julia Roberts. Mrs Hirons, Mr Hunt [ our Bath Spa Teacher] and I supported too. We had been studying a topic called ‘Flight and Space’ so in literacy we shared the story of ‘Icarus and Daedalus’. So we made an animated film all about the legend. We had a brilliant time and learnt so many new skills – the adults too! Some children also wrote their own background music to add to the film.

As part of the Frome Community Learning Partnership Year 4  planned and filmed an information film called ‘ How to look after your teeth’ which hopefully will soon appear on the website.

Several children and I attended the ‘Oscars’ award ceremony at the Merlin Theatre and we were delighted to win an Oscar for ‘Best original concept’ and a special award for the ‘Icarus and Daedalus’ film.

Look out for the films and also for photos of the award winners!!!
