It’s taken me months to get round to writing up a page about my work at Robin Hood JI School over the Summer Term. Luckily some of the reason for this has been that I have busy with running around on several other project, including an extensive project with The Wildlife Trust (more on that later!) and another film project for Solihull Libraries! However, the main reason is that it involved so many different and exciting strands that I wasn’t too sure where to begin!
You can now find a summary of the project on the Schools Page although it still feels as though I’ve not done it justice. As a freelance film-maker it was such a fantastic experience to challenged to produce something fun and exciting which would leave staff and pupils with a lasting legacy. Pupils not only had DVDs to take home, I genuinely believe that they grew in confidence and would now be able to produce their own films. In fact, a browse round the school’s excellent website this morning revealed that Year 4 have been making their own Origami Videos! Great stuff!
I’m hoping to build on this schools work through taking part in further training. I’m thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Radiate Training Scheme (fingers crossed for that!) and next week I’ll also be attending the ‘Youth Voice’ seminar at Queensbridge School which looks excellent!
