After weeks of hard word, Year 4 have finally finished filming their movies! We've been tirelessly filming across the school and reshooting scenes where necessary. Then on Friday we spent the morning using the iPad app Splice to put our film together. We learnt how to order our film clips, use transitions, how to clip and trim videos and how to add a variety of audio (sound effects and music) to our film. We now have our two final movies and will be watching them on Monday to see whether we need to make any more changes before our premier! Once we're happy and have finalised the final versions, we'll be sending home our invites to the big event!
We've also been looking forward to Billy Bob Buttons' visit next Monday. He will be leading a special workshop for us where we will learn how to plan a story. To prepare for this, we've been using Aaron Becker's beautiful storyook 'Journey' to inspire us. The story is of a child who finds magic chalk to travel to different worlds and we will use this to start off our own stories. We went out on the playground in the afternoon to draw our own chalk doors to help get our creative juices flowing!
Keep an eye out for our next blog to find out more about our special author visit.
