Making a trailer

In this session we worked on making a trailer. We’ve been wanting to do this for the past few weeks to advertise our project more widely around the school and to encourage others to join us. We thought about the words that WW1 conjured up to us on the basis of what we had learned to date and each choose a word to write out on a red card. We were then each filmed solemnly saying our word, and then we placed our card on to a giant poppy which we constructed on the floor from red paper. It was as if we were building our poppy from the words we had chosen. We also laid other things next to our words, such as photos. It was quite moving to be involved in making the trailer and we’ll now look forward to seeing it with great anticipation.
