Hello! So this is my second post of the Haltwhistle Film Project. We are literally finished our movie and Marc and Vicki are just adding the finishing touches with the editing. Me and Lewis were editing the the egg on the window scene where I threw an egg in Marc’s car which is a scene from a person called Neil telling us about it.

Also Marc made an idea. Instead of making into a DVD we well Marc decided to make it on a website which we all agreed on and thought it was a great idea!

Like I said in my last post I may not have been enjoying this project that much but when me and Lewis were editing it sort of changed because it was quite fun! Thanks to Marc and Vicki for doing all this for us and I’m sure this will be a great film.


60 years of Benton Park

Hello I’m gonna be telling you about creativity this year. So far year 6 have been very busy doing the Haltwhistle Film project with Marc and Vicki. I have found this very tricky especially filming as I haven’t enjoyed some, but I have enjoyed parts of it so thanks to Haltwhistle for this opportunity.

Also on the radio my crew (KS1) have made a new feature called How well do you know the school which is a quiz on Benton Park throughout it’s sixty years. By clicking on the link underneath you will be able to listen to it!

60 years of Benton Park

Hi I’m Bethan and I am going to tell you all about what year 6 have being doing to prepare for Creativity Fortnight.

A while ago the Haltwhistle film project came in to do some filming with all of Year 6. The first bit of filming we did was interviewing people who came to Benton Park in past years. We also interviewed Varun. Then we took some off the main stories they told and re-anacted them on film. Reccently we have been editing the stories.

On the KS2 Radio show we have a new feature called “Guess the Decade”. It is amazing you get given three clues and you have to guess the decade. Pretty simple really.

I am looking forward to doing things on our class decade witch is…. The 50s!

Thank You for reading.


Haltwhistle Film Project- Year 6

At the moment Year 6 are busy filming, producing and directing a number of short films about the 60 years of the school being open. Over the next few weeks we will be interviewing many people with memories and experiences of Benton Park. We will be using their stories to create a DVD celebrating the history of the school.

Some of these stories will be turned into animations, some will be re-enacted and some will be a mixture of both.
