Please see attached booklet for events happening this Summer
This school has been working with Hull University post graduate
students, researching work on Immersive Drama in education who
have been developing multi sensory and interactive scenarios, to
provide two completely different dramatic experiences. One project
used our 4D immersive room to create four stories around, Super
Heroes, An Enchanted Castle, A Wrestling Bout and an
Underwater Adventure, in which individual students could make
decisions about the events and characters that appeared on
screen and take control of how they themselves became involved
in the story sequence and ‘control’ what happened.
The other project has developed the traditional story of ‘Red Riding
Hood’, the students assisted the children to create their own story
resources, decide what the characters looked like and make the
props. They finished with a final ‘promenade performance’ in the
The projects have been innovative and exciting and we very much
hope that this new partnership will provide us with further
opportunities to work together in the future.
4D Immersive Studio Work
It has been wonderful for our College Centre students to work
together again with Year 10 music students from Hymers College
and get involved in some collaborative composition work. Both
schools value this ongoing partnership and look forward to
planning further visits and opportunities to perform together.
Students here are seen working on an experimental ‘sound picture’
related to our ‘Routes & Roots’ season topic, using percussion,
orchestral instruments and our ‘Soundbeam’. Composed,
rehearsed, recorded and edited all within the space of an hour!
After many weeks of preparation, fund raising, sleepless nights and excitement the students and staff involved in the Calvert Trust Outdoor Activity Centre at Keswick have enjoyed a fantastic week .
Many thanks to all those families, staff, community organisations and friends who enabled the residential to take place. We are proud to share a taste of Keswick.
