It was wonderful to see the coverage the school received on the ITV Meridian News on Sunday evening showing Lake and the other finalists at the ITV Studios in Maidstone. It covered Lake being interviewed as well as recording his voiceover for the animation that is being made about the Pudding Pans discovered off the coast of Herne Bay. This was all made possible by Sandra Porter from the Seaside Museum who was the brainchild behind the project and Phil Gomm from UCA Rochester who is producing the animation with his students.
Following on from the audition process that took place in school in December looking for the ‘Voice of Marcus’ for the Pudding Pan animation, eight excited children (all audition finalists)made their way to the ITV Studios in Maidstone today. They were invited to have a tour of the studios and then for Lake, the voice of Marcus, to record his voiceover.
Once inside the studios the group were taken to a base room with Mrs Amos, Mrs Prichard, Phil Gomm from UCA Rochester and Sandra Porter from The Seaside Museum. The group were met by Simon, who runs a TV Production and Media course who settled them in and explained the agenda for the day. Lake was taken into the brand new sound booth which had only just been completed to see where his voiceover would be recorded. Whilst in there ITV News contacted Mrs Amos to say they were sending a reporter down to cover the story for Meridian News! Derek, the reporter arrived and was ready to film and then interview Lake who was raring to go. As Lake couldn’t be recorded doing the ‘actual’ voiceover recording, a mock-up was set up and Lake performed with the enthusiasm that secured his place as the voice of Marcus.
On Wednesday night children and families packed the King’s Hall for our annual Music Extravaganza. It was a magical night which showcased the amazing talent of so many children. A big thank you must go to Mr Miles who put the event together.
Year 5 invited many parents and carers in on Friday 14th December to share the 'Survival' projects that the children had worked hard on over the last two terms. There were projects about Arctic animals, ancient frogs, humans and the planet.
What a wonderful morning for our Wonders of the World exhibition! It was amazing to see so many children showing off their incredible hard work and learning from over the last two terms. We were really impressed to see that children had gone away and explored so many different Wonders that we had not covered within class.
