Grade 6 Goes to Hollywood

Welcome back for Term 2.  We hope you had a fantastic holiday.

Mrs. McKee went camping at Phillip Island where she searched for penguins and found herself caught in a storm. You should hear how she washed the breakfast dishes that day!

Mrs. Brough spent the holidays celebrating birthdays, catching up with friends and eating way too much chocolate.

What did you do on the holidays?

This term we are going to be using iMovie on our iPads.  In particular we are going to learn how create our own “Book Trailers”.  Have you ever thought about how your favourite picture book might look as a movie?  Here are some examples we have created for you.

Who Sank The Boat? by Pamela Allen.

Giraffes Can’t Dance, by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees

Today we are going to have a look at the iMovie trailer templates, select our picture book and start photographing.  Here is a quick look at iMovie for the iPad. You will have to turn the sound up and down a bit, Mrs. McKee had some trouble with the audio.

Which is your favourite iMovie Trailer Theme?

  2. Hi Mrs Brough,

    My holidays were great. How were yours?

    My favorite iMovie would have to be SCARY!
    What’s yours?

  3. Hello Mrs Mickee,

    During my holidays I went to the drive-in to see Jack The Giants Slayer, I went to the cinema to see Jurassic Park in 3D and I went to Supanova.
    My favorite theme would probably be scary.

  6. Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for your reply. I went to the ACMI cinema with my family. We saw Ponyo. It was a very cute movie.

    I like the scary theme too. Adrenaline is fun too.

  7. Hi Mitchell,

    Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the trailer, it was actually Mrs Shave who made the one for Who Sank The Boat. The trailers were really fun to make. I’m really looking forward to seeing the ones you guys make.

    From Mrs McKee
