Green TIME Project
Having worked with an artist, a musician, an actor and a film producer, the talented actors of Green Class have created wonderful puppets, composed music, learnt acting skills and made story-boards for a film called The Recycled man. This linked to the book they have been studying in English (Ted Hughes’ ‘The Iron Man’) and involved aspects of the wider curriculum including geography (volcanoes), science (magnetism) and whole school approaches (eco and environmental action). The teacher has put a lot of energy and time in to the project too and the final creation is amazing. It has been shared with parents and you can see some screen shots here too!
The film ends with the wonderful lines…’Sometimes when you can’t find a hero, that’s because the hero is you’. This captures what we believe about children’s capacity to have an impact and change things in their world.
