The second part of our amazing day of film-making was with the BBC Spring watch team. The presenters Chris and Michaela took us out to the woods behind the school where the pupils were split into two teams. Michaela’s team went off to write some nature poetry, while Chris took his group to look for creepy crawlies. Both presenters were fantastic with the children, and the pupils themselves were all absolute stars! We’re not sure yet when the film will be shown on Spring watch, but will let you know as soon as we find out!
Here are what P6/7 had to say about their afternoon working with Chris and Michaela:
Sophie: The best bit about the after noon was when i got a big fright from a crane fly
Gregor : I did poetry in the afternoon i enjoyed it because we wrote acrostic poems with springwatch.
Abbie: As for the spring watch stuff i liked it when i found my lady bug because it had white spots.
Daisy: When the Spring watch people came I was very excited my favorite part was writing the poems and I felt like I learnt that you have to repeat a lot of the time when filming.
Emily: In the afternoon we wrote some poems with Michaela we had to do lots of takes.THANKS SPRING WATCH TEAM!!
Heidi: When the Spring watch team came for the filming with us it was cool to experience all the behind the scenes and retakes but when we went into the woods to do the poetry it was amazing to see all the beautiful nature and scenery around our forest
Ellie: In the afternoon was it was fun being in the woods for the poems.
Rosie: When spring watch came into school we went into two different groups one with Chris and one with Michaela. I was in the one with Chris and we went looking for invertibrates (bugs) and I thought it was really fun.
Imogen: I had a brilliant time with the spring watch and i was with Michaela writing a poem and we did a lot of filming.
Willow: I enjoyed it when the BBC came in because i liked seeing the presenters and finding bugs with Chris. It was really fun learning about all the types of bugs we found in the woods and looking at them through the magnifying box we caught them in. overall I had a brilliant time and would definitely do it again if I had the chance.
Eddie: I enjoyed hunting for invertebrates.
Linnea: I really liked looking for invertebrates.
