Caritas Fundraising Appeal

As part of the RE module, ‘Solidarity and the Common Good,’ Classes 9 and 10 have been working hard to organise a fundraising event to raise money for Caritas. Caritas is an organisation that works hard to help rebuild the lives of people who face many challenges and hardships.

Below is a video appeal to help raise awareness about these challenges and to advertise our fundraising event, ‘Crazy Hair Day,’ which will take place on Friday 1st July. The children used the app Spark Video to bring their research to life. Please watch the video to find out more information.

Violent Volcanoes!

To celebrate the end of the half term, Class 9 and Class 10 took to the playground to set off their fantastic, homemade volcanoes. Children used vinegar and bicarbonate of soda or mints and coca cola to emulate a volcanic eruption. The children (and parents) made the volcanoes during their ‘What Makes the Earth Angry?’ topic. A huge thank you to the parents who gave their time to help produce such wonderful creations!

 

Priscus vs. Verus: A Fight to Remember!

Last week in Literacy, Class 9 and 10 re-enacted the famous gladiator battle between Priscus and Verus. Children played the roles of the gladiators, Emperor Titus and the notorious Colosseum crowd. The children made note of the atmosphere and how each of the gladiators were feeling to support them in writing a newspaper article of the event.

Multimedia Project: Part 4

Continuing from last week’s posts, this work is an outstanding example of digital art. Boys from Class 10 worked under the theme of ‘Welcome to our World’ with the intention of introducing Earth to a visitor. They collected striking images, planned a concept and then used Adobe Photoshop to edit the photos before blending them into a striking montage. The ICT skills needed for this work are of an extremely mature level so well done boys! Click on the image to enlarge it.

Multimedia Project: Part 3

If you love Lady Gaga then you’ll love this video! Seven girls from Class 10 planned, storyboarded, filmed and edited this excellent piece of media work. They were particularly mature when it came to the tricky stage of editing their work. Look out for the brilliant dance and maybe learn it at home…

Multimedia Project: Part 2

Following on from yesterday’s excellent Comic Book upload, we are very proud to present the above music video. Pupils from Class 10 formed the group ‘Hypontik’, learnt the song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ and then planned, storyboarded, filmed and edited a music video. We hope you enjoy this outstanding piece of media work, well done girls.
