The last few weeks with Grade 5s have been exciting, stressful, SO FUN, and a lot of work (Their words, not mine). But the videos are done!
As part of How We Express Ourselves with the central idea “With connection to a wider audience comes great responsibility”, Grade 5 classes made a music video. 26 students involved in one project – what a super cool example of connection.
Each class brainstormed ideas for what message the world hear, and then decided on a song that would fit that theme. After that, the class chose different roles that were needed to make the music video possible. They came up with roles like this:
Then it was off to work! A filming date was set – and moved for some, thanks to the typhoon – but filming happened across the school, and all footage was given to the editors to put together in a creative way to get the message across.
You’ve GOT to see these videos!
You can find a video from each class here. Watch, comment, and enjoy!
