This week Reception pupils have had a lot of fun studying the short film Heartstrings which was created by a Welsh artist. Pupils first began by watching the short film and spoke about the different emotions apparent within the film. We then looked at the film more closely and discussed why there was no speech or setting within the film and the effect this had on us as the audience.
Pupils then undertook a variety of activities linked to the film, where pupils particularly enjoyed the challenge of creating a new setting/ background for various scenes based on the emotions that the characters were feeling. Pupils also enjoyed re-creating the scenes on the ipads and including dialogue, as well as taking it in turns to answer questions about the characters and settings within the film.
Well done Reception!
