Lead Creative School - Final sessions

We had our final two sessions of our Lead Creative School A Midsummer Night's Dream project over the last two weeks.

Our main focus has been on creating an end production to showcase everything that we have worked on during the project. We decided a few weeks back that we would take on the challenge of exploring the wider world of the fairies within the play via the use of documentaries.

We continued to develop our understanding of drama techniques with Gareth and Ronnie and Ally by playing some games. We have enjoyed learning how to play these games with some particular favourites being the number game (even though we couldn't get any higher than nine) and popcorn.

We developed these further by looking at the hello/goodbye game, where we took the clapping element of popcorn and transferred it to saying hello or goodbye dependent on what side of the circle we were on. This also developed our way of saying words to express emotions fully as we had to say them in different ways with appropriately matched responses.

We then began developing our storyboards for our group documentaries based on the fairy worlds. We decided what aspects of the fairy world we were going to be working on and started storyboarding and scripting them. We also decided what type of documentary we would be making, whether it would be a nature style one, or a fly on the wall one with a narrator who would interact with the fairies.

We then began thinking about how to record these documentaries - whether this would be by using still frame shot of different tableau, with narration over the top, or by filming using a real life technique.

We are still in the process of making these documentaries and will add them to the blog/youtube channel when they are ready.

  4. I really enjoyed having lead creative schools come in to teach us about a midsummer nights dream because it helped us learn about different creatures. My favorite lesson was when we did the proper cup of coffee with gaz and i loved when we watched different videos to determine which documentary style we would have - the documentary styles were fly on the wall and a David attenborough type documentary it was so fun. thank you very much ali, ronnie and gaz for helping us to learn a lot more about a midsummer nights dream. I think from having lead creative schools project has really helped with our knowledge on a midsummer nights dream and has boosted year 6's for comp because you never know we could need all this information about a midsummer nights dream thankyou everyone for letting us have this project.

  5. I really enjoyed this project because it centres around my favourtite thing drama. It increases your social standing and gets you working as a team. On a scene Ronnie was my favourite person to work with. When we were doing our fairy documentary we used a nature documentary style. I was the Aavid Attenborough of my group and my class.
