Over the next couple of weeks we’re revamping our support material in addition to creating a brand new website. Anomaly Film YouTube channel  changing anomaly film Over the summer we’ve been looking at some of the challenges that face schools when using digital technology in schools. Over the summer we’ve created a number of videos for our schools to enjoy. These videos are all tutorials which should help schools make the most out of their digital technology. You can expect to see these videos at the back end of August, just before schools go back. From that point, videos will roll out monthly.

Anomaly Film website We revamped our current Anomaly Film website at the end of the last year after we had established that schools needed to know more about the service. Our website aimed to inform schools all about the Anomaly Film service in addition to showcasing the achievements of our hundreds of schools who have opted for the service. A couple months down the line and we realised we needed a revamp of our platform to better showcase the work that our wonderful schools have done.

Learn how volunteers can improve your school in this Anomaly blog post. Its volunteer’s week and we understand the importance of those that give up their time for free to help improve schools all over the UK. Learn how volunteers and teachers can utilise Anomaly equipment to improve their classroom. This blog post features information about Anomaly Film. Becoming a classroom helper Classroom helpers volunteer to assist teachers on a regular basis, usually in primary schools. Classroom helpers can assist teachers in a number of ways. Whether it’s aiding with keeping the class in control or listening to pupils read. Reading practice in particular is very labour-intensive and helpers can make a big difference to not only the children but the teachers as well. Volunteers like classroom helpers usually commit to spending regular slots of time in school each week. The time that volunteers spend at schools can vary from half an hour to half a day at most. Although volunteers will go to the school that their child attends, it is unlikely that the volunteer would be in the same classroom that their child is in as it can be disruptive. Volunteers make a big difference in improving standards. Even if you’re not helping in your child’s class, research shows that having a parent who volunteers improves a child’s experience in school. Research has also shown that children who have parents that are more involved with what is going on at school are more likely they to do well in their exams. How do volunteers improve the Anomaly experience? With any event, it’s important to do forward planning. With an Anomaly Film day students will be able to experience the use of green screen technology in their school. Volunteers can help our Anomaly team by taking part in interviews and any other videos that the children may have planned for that day. Take a look here from a previous Anomaly Film day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQAgT29L7k0 If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology and digital signage into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

Below you will be able to find a written testimonial from the school which highlights their experience with the Anomaly service. Gavin Evans, head teacher at Hilltop Primary School said: “After working with Anomaly and having a digital screen installed, it has transformed playtimes. Whenever I wander out onto the playground during a break there are always many children mirroring the exercises displayed on the screen. The children love the activities that we have installed on the screen. It’s also a bonus to have these activities programmed to be on at certain times. Raising participation and volumes of energetic activity was a priority and the Anomaly screen has helped to do this.” Gavin continued to say: “When the children are not running, stretching and jumping they are watching the second screen and getting excited about seeing themselves and their work on the screen. Thank you Anomaly!” If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

In this blog post Anomaly focuses on one of its successful schools, South End Junior School. After recently embracing digital technology at their school, we asked South End Junior School to say a few words regarding the experience with Anomaly. Read their testimonial which highlights their experiences whilst using the Anomaly services. south end junior school Anomaly recently had the pleasure of working with South End to improve their existing digital infrastructure. Like most schools, South End is constantly promoting e-safety at their school – this is when they approached us to see how we could help. After spending the day with our trainer, Tim, South End produced a professional video to promote the subject. The video was scripted, acted and created by the pupils of South End and after tackling this difficult subject in such a creative way, the pupils now have a firm understanding of E-safety. Georgie Lewis, Computer Expert at South End Junior School said: “Tim came for the day and spent it with ten children, who are the digital ambassadors. They independently drafted out a script in their own time together and were ready to start filming on the day with Tim.” On the topic of E-safety, Georgie said: “The message the children were given as a brief for them to then have free reign on what ‘E-Safety’ was and how we could promote it further in our school. Tim was very welcoming and warm towards the children and they were very at ease around him. He explained all the equipment and the timetable of the day to them clearly. We loved our day with him and wouldn’t hesitate to ask for him when we have our next filming day with Anomaly.” Below you will be able to find the video that South End Junior School created. We think it’s brilliant and promotes e-safety in a very positive light.

Teaching Primary school pupils about religion and helping them to develop a deep understanding can be quite a challenge. To tackle this, St Winefride’s Catholic Primary School in Bradford have made use of green screen technology to interview their parish Priest, Fr. Paul and created short film which can be broadcast to the whole school using their Anomaly Screen in the playground. Saint Winefride’s on Vimeo. Using green screen to tackle topics which most pupils find hard to engage with can help to improve their knowledge and understanding, but most importantly increase their retention of information. By broadcasting this video on their Anomaly Screen, they are also able to reiterate the school’s religious beliefs and values to the whole school community, including parents and visitors. Non-faith schools could use this idea as part of the new OFSTED requirement for all primary schools to teach children about fundamental British Values. One strand of this new initiative covers understanding other faiths and cultures which make up Great Britain. To see more videos created by St. Winefride’s Catholic Primary School, head over to their website or Vimeo.
