Pupils from Brydekirk Primary have been working together on animations and songs to show that they have learned about their rights.
Some P5-7 children wrote a script and drew and coloured characters and backgrounds. Next, a couple of P7s scanned the work and saved them in our shared folder which were then used to make animations in 2Simple 2 Animate. After that Mr A transferred all of the animations onto another computer.
Ms Davis, our Music Teacher, taught both classes and recorded pupils from P1-4 who made their own song and also played the bells. She then edited the videos and shared them with the staff.
Finally, Mr A edited all of the videos with iMovie. Then we narrated the videos in the P5-7 class, all with respect to social distancing, which was a challenge.
We really hope you enjoy our video which has been loads of work and we’ve put a lot of effort into.
This year due to the limitations on social gathering, instead of our usual Nativity, we took on a project to make a video instead, to be shown on the Internet on Thursday the 17th December at 7pm, now!
We read the Nativity in a book called Catherine Marshall’s Story Bible and then planned our film using a storyboard. Some P5-7 children then wrote a script, whilst other pupils drew and coloured characters and backgrounds. Next, a couple of P7s scanned the work and saved them in our shared folder which we then used to make animations in 2Simple 2 Animate. After that Mr A transferred all of the animations and a couple of green screen videos onto another computer.
On another day, pupils from P1-4 made green screen videos of some of the scenes and also recorded songs which they didn’t sing but did actions in Makaton. These videos were also transferred to the computer.
Finally, Mr A edited all of the videos using OBS and iMovie. Then we narrated the video in the P5-7 class and also did the same in the P1-4 class, all with respect to social distancing, which was a challenge.
We really hope you enjoy our Nativity which has been loads of work and we’ve put a lot of effort into.
We’ve all being learning to recite a Scots Poem off by heart and had a class and then school Heat for the Annan Cluster Primary Scots Poetry competition. Well done to Donovan and Ben who were put forward for the Cluster Competition. Extra well done to Donovan who won his category.
Here’s some recordings that P5-7 made plus a couple of bonus tracks. One bonus track is Scots Wha Hae and the other is a very old recording that was on the recording device that I thought I’d share.
This week and last week the primary 2-4 have been really thinking about what makes a good reader. We made a display in the library corner to remind ourselves what we should do each time we read a book. The pupils designed, created and even stuck the display up themselves. Miss I was the photographer who took (mostly) candid pictures of the children reading. Have a look at their great work.
The Annan Riding of the Marches Principles visited Brydekirk Primary this afternoon. This is a tradition that has happened for many long years and long may it continue. Following an introduction and short speech from Stuart Thompson, the pupils entertained the visitors with singing. Next Mrs Sybelle Raey announced the prize winners from Brydekirk in the competitions, including poetry, handwriting, colouring and poster; well done to all who took part. Especially well done to Lilian who won best overall poem, 1st place in poetry, 2nd place in handwriting, Hannah 3rd place in poetry, Izzy and Poppy. The pupils then gave the AROM Principles a couple more songs and wished them good luck to send them on their way.
One of our P7’s was inspired by their non fiction reading to write a poem. It’s rather excellent and deserves to be shared, demonstrating some clever language features including alliteration and plays on words, not to mention some super rhyming. Well done Lilian.
