In Doves class, we used information from our lessons to make a documentary. To do this we had to create paper mache skulls. First we had to make a wire frame, it was very fiddly. After that, we used masking tape on the frame to paper mache over. The next day, we paper mached over the masking tape, we had to do a couple of layers. Soon after that, we painted the skull white and then added a few details. Then we used the skull for the start of the documentary.
In D.T. we made a mammal and a bird puppet , we used these for our documentary in the part of the elephant and swan life cycles. First of all, we needed to cut the felt for the body. After we have done that, we got our stuffing and used the hot glue gun to stick half of the body down, then we stuffed it and closed it with glue gun. We then cut out a head shape for the right puppet and glued it together. With string, we glue gunned a cog to the string to make legs, we made however many we needed. We then added any extra detail to the body and head. Finally, we sawed wooden sticks in half and tied string to the end of the sticks. We attached it to the body.
In our English lessons, we were trying to write a narrative like David Attenbrough. We got into our groups that we worked in, and put all our ideas into one to make a script. In addition, after we decided the script, we typed it up on the laptop for the narrator.
Next we did some research in topic to find out what we were going to use for our life cycles. We added this information to our script then we printed it out.
Eventually, we chose who was going to do what such as(the director, filmer, narrator, presenters and the artistic director.) We asked the artistic director to make a slideshow for the background and scenary. We also needed to get black paper to make it look like a documentary, to hide the puppeteers.
