We are a Rights Respecting School

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.

All the best for 2021,

P1-7 Pupils from Brydekirk Primary 🙂

The Nativity 2020

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.

Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021,

P1-7 Pupils from Brydekirk Primary 🙂
