This final half term sees Year 7 exploring digital media. They are exploring social media influencers and looking at why they have a huge impact in young people’s lives. The students will be creating an interactive presentation including sound and videos about these social media influencers.
Year 8 are learning about designing their own music festival and they have planned a website to promote it. The students are incorporating a variety of features into their websites, including scrolling text. They are investigating HTML that sits behind the websites and are starting to write some HTML codes to help produce their websites.
Year 9 are learning about media and have looked at some of the theory behind films. They have looked at a range of audiences and purposes and have learnt about different narrative structures and character types. They are working in groups and have planned a film trailer for a teenage audience with a purpose of escapism. The students have produced their scripts and have started to film. They will then edit the video clips and incorporate sound effects for the trailer. I am looking forward to seeing what the students produce as there are some very interesting ideas!
