Fabulous films by Prospect Bank!

Some of our children have had the pleasure of working with Sean from the Fruit market gallery on a project which involved writing, performing and recording a film. This project was very exciting and the children worked very hard on it. They worked as a team and made their own props and worked with sound, camera and writing their own story boards. I am very pleased to share the link to this video so you can be as impressed as we are! , https://vimeo.com/294333620 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2Yv49iRxZk&feature=youtu.be

Pupils work at the fruit market gallery


Pupils work at the Fruitmarket Gallery

Prospect Bank School have been lucky enough, for the second year, to be taking part in the Making Matters schools programme, which is run by the Fruitmarket Gallery. The Fruitmarket’s artist for the project this year is film-maker Tacita Dean, who works with 16mm film. Her work explores the mechanics and processes of working with film and its capacity for making stories.

Some of our pupils have been working with Screen Education Edinburgh (SEE), to put together their own stories in a film that they’ve created themselves. Their film is based around Tacita Dean’s work.

The film will be screened during an exhibition open to the public at the Fruitmarket Gallery from 6-7 October where all 6 schools involved will show their work. Pupils will attend an opening on the 5th of October to see their work on display, and friends and family are invited to view the exhibition and take part in fun workshops at the gallery on Sunday 7th October from 2-5pm.
Please go along and view the fantastic artwork if you can

First week back to Forest Schools!

We had a lovely first day this session at Forest Schools with a little rain in the morning and some sun in the afternoon. Everyone had a great time regardless and really enjoyed being in the woods. We explored and did a treasure hunt, played games and had fun with the goodies in our activity bag and the hammock. Well done to everyone, what stars you were, its nice to be back!
