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.

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.

Retro Cakes Rock once again.

Students from Ms. Wallace’s Tuesday afternoon Chef School group have been rocking out the Retro pineapple upside down cakes that were recommended by Mrs. Willett’s chef school group!

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!!
