Thank you to all the people who tuned in for our First Webinarl, last week. This was hosted by the Senior Leadership Team and the Chair of Governors, and was intended to offer a school response to the uncertainty around the ‘Wider Opening of Schools’.
If you were unable to access the webinar on the day, you may use the links below to view a recording of the session
Topic: Parent Webinar – Wider Opening of Schools Start Time : Jun 30, 2020 15:56 *PLEASE NOTE – the webinar content does not start until around the 16:30pm mark*
For this to work, we need you to capture your child’s performance at home, and then send it to us. We will then combine the recordings from each year group.
We encourage children to have as much fun as possible creating the videos, dressing up, singing, dancing. Make it enjoyable. There is no pressure to sound perfect. Teachers will have given guidance in home learning.
Playing and Recording
Download and play the guide track above for you child’s year group on one device (device A), making sure your child knows the song.
Find a quiet place with good light to make the recording.
Use a separate device (device B) to record the performance. This should be whichever device has the best camera.
In order to sing in time and in tune, your child will need to hear the music playing from device A through earphones while they perform.
The resulting video should not include the backing music.
Tip: Record close to your child to avoid having too much echo in the room. This tends to improve the overall sound.
If your child’s performance includes dance, it may be best to record an audio/sound file (voice note) separately. Please send both files in the same way.
Naming Videos (very important)
Please rename your files before sending (ChildName_class_song). It will really help the editing process.
Due to the large size of video files, you may need to use a service such as WeTransfer, Gdrive, OneDrive or Dropbox. If you have problems with sending your video, it would be very helpful to us if you would ask friends for support, only contacting the school as a last resort.
If you are able to choose the subject line of the email you send, please include the same information as the file name.
The above email address is a shared mailbox which will be monitored for submissions only.
The Event – 7pm, Monday 20th July
The event will be a live, free, publicly viewable stream on the internet. Feel free to invite family and friends to watch. The link to the stream will be shared nearer the time and will be posted on the school website.
NB:We will treat your sending of video and audio files as consent to use your child’s image and performance in this way. For this reason, we ask that you send the file from your own email account, and not that of your child.
Please follow the link below to see the results of Spring’s Parental Survey. These results have been collated by the Governing Body of Edmund Waller and are intended to show how the parents view the school.
Please take a moment to have a read over and see if these reviews reflect your own feelings about the school.
