Movie time!

6th Form Movies
Film Project run in conjunction with First Light and Film Oxford, Isis Academy 6th Form & Yr.11
We made two films over a period of two months, The Red Sofa, and Mr. Robinzom. We worked alongside professionals from the film industry using professional equipment. We learned many skills such as; teamwork, editing, camera skills, working safely, making music/soundtracks/special effects.
We were surprised by how many tricks we could use with the camera, and how different effects could be created using the green screen. The amount of different sound affects available impressed us as well. It did surprise us how much cost is involved, and the time it takes to create the music. We had to create our own, copyright-free music to use in both films.
Liam Fennell enjoyed working with industry standard professional cameras. Matthew Thomas-Pain liked making the music. Daniyal enjoyed using the cameras also, but particularly enjoyed writing the script.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers and professionals who helped us, and worked with us on this project. We are extremely grateful and appreciate your help very much.

Hello Iffley Mead Blog!

Kahn class have been thinking long and hard about the task Mrs. Smith set us in Monday’s assembly.

So we would like to open this space up to you guys and girls to share your ideas on what the future will look like in 60 years time.

Kahn class have been thinking about what transport would look like (we thought there might be a transportation machine or flying cars), what food and drink we will have, what hobbies we will play, what fashion will look like.

We also thought about if we might have robots and what kind of jobs they might do.

So Iffley Mead and friends let

KS4 Options Evening

Well it was a long day at Iffley Mead today but well worth while as we met with students and their families to discuss options for KS4. Mr Jones had loads of takers for Duke of Edinburgh and all the options stands looked amazing!! It’s so exciting to be thinking about next year already.

Kahn Class and the Imaginarium!

Kahn Class have been doing a really exciting project with the students at the blog Imaginarium. The Imaginarium students are based all the way over the other side of the world in Australia!

A pupil at the Imaginarium contacted Kahn to ask if we wanted to do a project with their class. Miss Macfall then emailed their class teacher and together we have been taking photographs of the things that we love about our schools and writing about them. Have a look at what Kahn Class have to say about Iffley Mead!

Don’t forget to check out the brilliant work that the Imaginarium students posted up on their school blog as well :

Manga on the iPads

Today in Lambie class we had loads of fun researching Manga and independently using the iPads to make Manga drawings!

American crocodiles!

Critically endangered, the prehistoric-looking American crocodile struggles to survive in pockets of shrinking habitat. The American crocodile is considered an endangered species in nearly all parts of America.

The American crocodile grows faster than the American alligator and does not mind salt water. The American crocodile lives in southern Florida. The word crocodile comes from the Greek name krokodilos.


iPads in the classroom…

Today Miro class were using the new iPads to watch the Kidrobot film on how to make their clay sculptures. Great results!!
