Winchester Majors through the lens

Film Making, Advanced Exam Skills & Creative Writing

Film Making

This weeks project: The Discovery Summer Winchester documentary.

The students were busy brainstorming ideas for the big Winchester film that will capture the essence of the school and the amazing experience from the student perspective.

Four main chapters will be selected for the film. These will help give a detailed overview of the centre, from the academic programme to the social aspect of summer school. An important concept of the documentary is to encapsulate the extraordinary number of nationalities and cultures that the students experience here at Winchester. We can't wait to see the results.

Advanced Exams Skills

Focussed learning on Listening Skills.
This class are developing their listening skills. This is a crucial element of advanced exam skills. Our specialist teacher, Paula, is helping the students refine this valuable skill with a quick fire listening and answer session.

Creative Writing 

Focussed learning on Characterisation.

The students were constructing templates for their characters and plot creation. Today they are specialising in developing the main characters of their stories to add depth to the plot. This characterisation includes physical, mental and emotional traits in order to give the story and characters a strong foundation.
