Working with Schools

This section of the website provides numerous ideas and resources which enable schools to use a single photograph or series of photos from the Derek Evans Studio archive as their inspiration and then, by using iPads or video cameras, as a means to explore their own local heritage or other related theme. 

This is a joint venture between Catcher Media and one of the project partners, Herefordshire Learning and Achievement Services.



Schools participating in the project will be given training in digital production and post-production, access to a suite of resources and technical support. This will equip school-children and their teachers with the necessary skills to make a short film or digital artwork: speak to local people about their memories, create a news report or to green-screen themselves back in time into old photographs.



There is a Grand Premiere Screening of all films at the Hereford Odeon. So far 23 Herefordshire schools have taken part in the project. Arriving in their best outfits, students present each film and receive an award. See the Photo Gallery and the Video Links below.

Resources

These resources have been developed over the 15 years that Catcher Media and Herefordshire Learning and Achievement Services have worked together to deliver media & IT projects.

Curriculum Links

Teachers can embed the project into aspects of the National Curriculum. For example, KS1 and 2 History curriculum makes numerous references to local history. It also refers to the process of historical enquiry and historical sources. Links to the English, Computing and Art programmes of study can also be made. In resources, our Case Study is from teacher Sarah George who used the archive as a cross-curricular method for her Year 4 pupils.  

 

Contact

If you would like involve your school, contact Julia from Catcher Media or Mark from Herefordshire Learning and Achievement Services.
