Can you help Old Ford Primary to win with our recycling video?

Recently we entered a ‘recycling competition‘ where we had to submit a 60 second commercial to encourage people to recycle. A group of year 6 girls did an amazing job and we got through to the last four. All four finalists were uploaded to YouTube and the one with the most views/likes will win. The winning commercial will be professionally recorded/shot and used on advertising campaigns.

Click on the link to hear our pupils’ commercial that reached the recycling competition finals.

The pupils would be really grateful if you would ‘like’ and ‘share’ their video so that we can win!

GarageBand comes to Old Ford Primary!

Pupils from year 5 composed music and sound effects for a topic-linked advert as part of a project using Garageband on iMac computers.

Pupils watched the original advert, observed the teacher begin to create a soundtrack and were then given free reign over their own. The group appraised the original music, discussed how it suited the mood and purpose of the advert, and considered this in their own work .
