The 4OQ websites directory!

July 26, 2011

All through this year, children from 4OQ have been creating websites using Google Sites. Some of these were linked to work we had done in class, but most were started because groups of children were excited about something and wanted to share it with their friends and the world.

Below you can explore all of the different sites that have been created, from stories to computer games, videos to history and football. Many of 4OQ’s passions and interests are here!

Sarehole Mill Radio Plays

July 18, 2011

Way back in March 4OQ visited Sarehole Mill. When we got back we worked with Fiona King from Birmingham REP theatre to create these radio plays. Finally they are available to the general public!

Each group began with the same introduction, and then wrote, rehearsed and performed their own radio plays based on the troubles that might have happened to the miller and his apprentice…


Sarehole Mill Radio Plays… Part One

At the end of the project they recorded some radio plays based on the history of Sarehole Mill. All of the groups started with the same opening, and then developed their own plays.
