Transition Part 1 - Message from Mr Gopaul and Miss Lane

Transition Part 2 - Message from the Classes
Message to our Year 6’s from  @BorisJohnson!
Your generation has come of age facing a challenge like no other generation before you. He urges you to jump on every opportunity that comes your way and “rugby tackle” it to the floor.
“And that strength of character, the qualities that you forged during the lockdown – empathy, resilience, self-discipline, patience – those are qualities we’re going to need now as we make our society fairer, make our air cleaner, stop our planet getting warmer."

Sky Academy Studios is challenging pupils to create a video to tell their lockdown story and share how they’re feeling during the coronavirus pandemic.

This provides children with a fantastic way to express themselves and use their own experiences to inspire others to stay positive during these challenging times, as well as reminding them of the importance of communication and keeping connected. By taking part in the #keepconnected challenge, you have the chance to win an amazing filming kit for your school.

How does it work?

Students will create short videos (30 seconds - 2 minutes) bringing their ideas to life.

Using tech they can access at home, and the current lockdown as inspiration, students can tell their stories. 

This provides a creative way to help them feel connected and stay positive during these challenging times.  

Using creativity and communication their stories can be:

  • FACTUAL: News Report or Vlog
  • FICTIONAL: Creative stories
