Year 8 pupils to be the next set of Steven Spielberg’s in spring term PBL

Posted In Academic

On Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th March, Year 8 pupils undertook their Spring Term Project Based Learning (PBL) challenge: can you create and produce the opening sequence for a new sitcom and pitch your idea to a panel for children’s television?

This was probably the most demanding challenge set yet as pupils had to learn how to write for television; master editing software and camera technique; develop characters; and learn how to write and present a pitch. However, all the staff involved were impressed by the level of engagement and persistence shown, and the quality of the work produced, and many groups scored highly when assessed against our PBL Virtue of Learning assessment framework.
