Yesterday, P6/7 had a fantastic day working with not one, but two BBC crews. In the morning, we were lucky enough to have an outreach team from BBC Scotland’s LAB project, who were here to teach the pupils about programme-making. The children learnt to use cameras, sound equipment and to be directors, presenters and interviewers. They used the skills they had learnt to make a short programme showcasing the nature in and around our school grounds, and an interview which some of the pupils filmed with the Springwatch presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan. This film will be shown on the BBC LAB website.
Here are what the kids had to say about their morning of film-making:
Sophie: I enjoyed working the camera in the morning because i really want to be a photographer .
Gregor: I enjoyed the morning because i got to be a presenter and work with a camera and being part of a team
Abbie: I liked doing the sound because when you had the headphones on you could hear every single little noise and it was really cool.
