Information for our Year Six leavers

Year Six leavers, please read this Important information about accessing the school website and Online Tools.

As your education comes to an end at Porchester, your access to the school digital resources will be changing. From August this year you will find that you are no longer able to access many of the learning resources. This will be because your usernames will be removed from our list of users. Other resources you may still be able to access, but not edit or amend. Below is a list of the changes that you will notice;

  • Blippit: Your account will be altered and access to creating Apps through the 'Porchester' portal no longer possible. However, you may find that your secondary school uses Blippit, and you'll know how to use it! Any apps you created whilst at Porchester will remain via the Planet Blippit school page.
  • Planet Sherston: Your account will be removed and access to all of the features in Planet Sherston no longer possible.
  • PurpleMash: You will still be able to use a limited number of free activities, but access to most resources will no longer be possible. In addition you will not be able to save, or load, resources saved online within PurpleMash. Please download to your own computer any that you wish to keep.

Your school network folder will be archived and maintained for a while, but you may wish to transfer the work within it before you leave. You will need to provide a memory stick and see Mr Widdowson who will transfer your work for you.

Modern Moral Movies

This half term the lower school classes have been having fun with their Digital Learning topic. They were asked to create a movie based on a story with a message or a moral. Each class chose a separate story, before planning out how they would film it. They watched a variety of films made previously at school to see the different styles that a film could be created in. They watched our silent movies, movies with a narrator, and movies with actors speaking.

Then they had to think about;

  • how could they modernise the story they wanted to tell?
  • where would they film the different sections of their story?
  • who would act in the story, who would film and who would direct?

They also had to storyboard the outline for their film, and decide whether to make a silent movie, a movie with narration, or allow the actors to tell their tale.

After lots of film clips, the recording of extra audio and (in one case) the addition of special effects, they used iMovie to put all their clips in order, added titles and transitions, and completed their work. Below we present their creations. We hope you enjoy!
