Anna,the trainee teacher is finishing her internship period in our school. She has bee working hard. She programmed an activity with 5th graders. This activity adapts the classic strategy Salad of stories proposed by Gianni Rodari in Grammar of Fantasy.

Pupils have been working hard too. they chose characters from different stories and they have been creating a new story with the characters chosen.

What is interesting about the project is that Anna has been working in collaboration with another trainee teacher in a different school, whose pupils were creating stories too.
Pupils in Pins have read the stories written by  the pupils in Sant Jordi School and have scored them. Pupils in Sant Jordi school have done the same with our stories. 
All the group has gotten a prize. Here they are with their certificates and their stories. if you click on the photo you'll be able to read the story they wrote.

Hello there!!
Here we are again with the second edition of the Pins Short Film Festival. The process is similar to the other years:

1. First I try to motivate them by watching the last Award Ceremony, some short films by former pupils, and another ones more, professional so that  they can pick up ideas.

2. They split up in groups and work on the vocabulary related to the cinema, the different genres of the films, the structure of the script...

  3. They think on the content and decide a title for their film.

4. They go on thinking on the content and typing the script. they use Google drive, so that they can share and work on them at the same time. They can use Wordreference to look for individual words and Deepl as a translator.

5. They memorise their  part and work on the pronunciation.

6. They sit on a circle and do a dramatized reading of the script.

7. They record the different scenes 

8. Pupils in 5th grade make the jury. They split up in groups of three, watch the films and score them.

Evaluate the short film by writing the numbers from 1 2 or 3.  Being 3 the best mark and 1 the worst one

Do you understand the story?

Do they use a clear and audible Voice?

Do they have a good pronunciation?

Do they act well?

Does each actor/actress speaks more or less the same time?

Is the short film original?

Does the film convey positive values?


And here you've got THE FILMS:
