Exciting ILT

on February 26, 2016

Over the last three days the Grade 6 pupils have been working on their first ever Grade 6 ILT. The task was both a challenging and exciting one. File_002

In groups of four or five, each group had to decide on an environmental issue that they felt strongly about and create an environmental documentary to highlight this cause. They came up with all sorts of interesting causes such as water pollution, deforestation, marine pollution and many also chose to focus on concerns around specific animals.

There were many skills which the children need to hone to complete this task. They had to research information on their cause, write and practice a debate for and against, film a peaceful protest with a suitable placard and chant to make a stand for their cause.

There was also a letter that need to be written to parliament in which they needed to make the members aware of the severity of their chosen cause.

Their documentary also included a motivational closing  and all of this needed to be in the form of a professional documentary and completed in the three days.File_000File_004

What a fun and enjoyable way in which to bring awareness to some very important causes and what better voice can we have than those of our future!File_006File_005
