Here is the first of our films from the Very Important Bear Project. These films were entirely the work of our P7 children. They wrote the storylines, wrote the scripts, created the props, created the backgrounds, worked on the mechanics of moving the bears, they filmed the movies using a video camera, they editted the movies using Windows Moviemaker, some groups adapted their voices using Audacity and then the groups presented their movies to their parents at our Premiere evening.
It was a great topic to teach and reflects the Curriculum for Excellence and learning in the 21st Century in many exciting ways.

This movie is by Chloe, Jayce, Kelly and Megan. The ending is rather abrupt as I had to remove the credits at the end in line with Internet usage policy.

My stay with Caitlin.

My stay at Caitlin’s house

As soon as me and Caitlin got to her house I was so excited. Caitlin asked if I was ok. I was ok , in fact I was great. Caitlin went into her room and got me a cute handbag and a cool pink and black hair band. Caitlin’s sister Kelsey was watching cbeebies and I thought I should watch it too.

While I was watching the telly, Caitlin went to tidy her room. When Caitlin had finished we went to her mum’s friend’s house to have a cup of coffee.

When we came back from her mum’s friend’s house Caitlin made me a comfy bed. Caitlin found me some p.j.s and a lovely dress she also got me a ribbon and tied it in a bow. Caitlin’s Gran and Granddad came over for dinner. After dinner Caitlin’s Gran and Grandad said that I could call them my Gran and Grandad. We all said goodbye and me and Caitlin and her mum went to her mum’s friends for another cup of coffee.

I made lots of friends and had a great time with Caitlin and her family. Thanks Caitlin.

Find out what happened when I went to Kelly's very shortly.

My Stay with Thomas

My stay with Thomas

Thomas took me home on Wednesday16/2/2010. We went to the Manchester United game which they won 4-0. We got home at 3 in the morning.

The next day me and Thomas stayed home. We woke up at lunch time. We had ham and mustard on our sandwich. Then we played a game called dominoes I won. After that we watched a funny movie called bad boys 2.

I played football with Thomas and his dad. Then we had our dinner it was pasta, the best pasta I have tried. Before we went to bed we watched a movie called mall cop. I went to bed and I fell asleep so quickly. In the morning we went to school.

It was the best week of my life.

My stay with Jordan.

When I was at Jordan’s house I had lots of things to do. We played his PlayStation 3. We played a lot of games and I had fun trying to join in. On Saturday we watched SpongeBob then I went to play with Jordan’s sister’s teddies. Jordan then showed me his fish shadow and sonic.

On Sunday I went on the trampoline it made me a little sick. Before that I watched WWE experience. After a bounce on the trampoline we played the PlayStation3 again. Sadly I have to go back to school on Monday.

My Stay at Sam's

I had a good time at Sam’s. Me and Sam played on the ps3, I had a shot it was really fun. I was watching tv too. I did not like Sam’s dog Harris he really scared me. Sam’s gerbil was ok but I did not like his big long tail. I had a go on bookworm on Sam’s notebook. The dvd we watched was called Bolt the Superdog. My favourite character was rhino the super hamster. He was so cool and funny. Bolt really thinks he is a super dog and it turns out in the end he is really super. Then we watched a good programme called Eastenders.
