Filming in the classroom wins school high praise
ARMED with cameras, children with special educational needs have been filming everything from boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s life to a high-energy group dance.
Their efforts bagged them high praise from organisers of a national competition.
The youngsters, from �Little Heath Foundation School, Hainault Road, Little Heath, used video cameras to express themselves and to build a sense of community at the school.
The children’s footage won a runner-up spot in Teachers TV’s Sharing Your Great Practice competition, which set schools the challenge of using video in an innovative way in the class.
