I hope that you are all keeping well despite yet another lockdown. You may remember that some time ago we sent a video request asking you to film your child throwing paper around (which you can see can this link) well, we are back with another request!
Next month, we are holding an event for all of the staff across our organisation. Last time we did this, one of the best parts of the day was a video of some of the young people and families sharing their thoughts with us. We’d love to do this again this year with a video montage of lots of the young people and their families from MacIntyre Academies and capture something of how the pandemic has impacted everyone.
We know that it would mean a lot to the staff to see everyone’s faces! In order for us to do this, we need your help!
Would you be willing to send us a short film of your child or your whole family waving / smiling/ doing something they love at home? And if possible also answering one or more of these questions by talking to camera or holding up a sign with a sentence written on?
- What have you learnt in the last year? (it could be a new skill or hobby, or something about yourself)
- What do you miss about school when you are not there?
- What are you most looking forward to doing after the Lockdown?
Could you please send the video to firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp it to me at 07939 216437 by the end of Half Term week (22nd February).
The video will be shown to all of our staff at our conference and a link will be provided to everyone who participates. It won’t be made public on social media.
This is an optional request so please don’t feel under pressure to do anything but it would be wonderful to see your child as this video would be a lovely treat for our staff.
I have put together a short instructional video that may help you get an idea of what we want. https://youtu.be/APqYobuHbQU
