Beasts of the Sea

These paper cuts were inspired by the work of Henri Matisse.  Later in his life, ill health prevented Matisse from painting.  For his paper cuts he cut out coloured paper freehand and stuck them to a background.  That is what we did using his work ‘Beasts of the Sea’ for inspiration.

Filmmaking in P5

Since Christmas we have been making films in P5.  We started by looking at the different genres of film.  From this we came up with as many ideas as we could.  The class then split into groups with each group choosing an idea and developing a screenplay.  This lead on to finding filming locations, choosing a cast, sourcing costumes and props and rehearsing before finally filming.

We were going to share these with parents and guardians at an assembly after Easter. However, as this will not now happen, here they are.

Get out the popcorn and enjoy!
