S1 Sound and Video Projects
Our S1 Computing Science pupils have been working extremely hard since January, creating videos as part of the Sound and Video unit of their course.
Pupils in each of the 9 S1 classes were split into groups of between 2 and 5 pupils and each group was allocated a story. The choices were: Room on the Broom, A Squash and a Squeeze, The Gruffalo’s Child, The Gruffalo and Superworm.
Each group then prepared a script for their allocated story and allocated parts to each pupil. Once they had done this, each group went to the Media Room where Mr Hawthorn, the IT/AV Technician recorded each group reading their script on the Radio Station equipment.
The pupils then edited the sound file using Audacity, taking out any mistakes and adding in Sound effects. Once the sound file was complete, the pupils used Serif Movieplus to create their video. The pupils inserted graphics into their video, with some also adding in some animations and then lined them up with the relevant part of the story. They then added in their end credits, giving them a finished video.
