In this blog post, Anomaly focuses on one of our successful schools, South End Junior School in Northamptonshire. We recently visited the school to do a project day with a number of pupils and their Anomaly Film kit, a portable green screen and filming kit for schools. Project days are free of charge service, where an Anomaly trainer will come to your school and help pupils use their Anomaly Film kit to film and edit their very own media ideas and produce a completed film by the end of the day. South End Junior School Anomaly has had the pleasure of working with South End Junior School to constantly improve their existing digital infrastructure and help support the school’s motto, ‘Inspiring the Learning Journey’. Tim, one of our experienced trainers, worked with the pupils on bringing to life their film on British values and the four topics of democracy, respecting religions, liberty and rule of law. We witnessed the fruits of the pupils’ creativity throughout the day with updates via their Twitter @SouthEndJrSch.

It’s St. George’s day tomorrow and to celebrate, we’re promoting British Values. In this blog post, we’re exploring how schools all over the UK have promoted British Values using Anomaly equipment. Hear from our talented schools as they prepare for the bkig day. Kingsway Primary School The first school in focus is Goole based school, Kingsway Primary School. Kingsway Primary School have been one of schools for a very long time. Last year they produced content which highlighted what it meant to them to be British. Utilising green screen technology in their school to produce a video about the subject, Kingsway demonstrated excellent knowledge related to British Values. Kingsway showed their ability to use a digital media alternative to learning in their school and judging by their video, they did a very good job too! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXaFduViX1I St Winefride’s Catholic Primary School Our next school in focus, 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. By broadcasting this video on their Anomaly Screen, they are able to reiterate the school’s religious beliefs and values to the whole school community, including parents and visitors. Promoting British Values is an excellent way to help teach St. George’s Day in schools. In addition to British Values, why not display content related to St. George’s Day on your Anomaly schools? Better yet you can make use of your Anomaly Film kit to produce a video which highlights key facts and puts your pupils at the heart of St. George’s Day.

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.
