Understanding other faiths and cultures with Anomaly

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.
