Seven Hills World War II Project

The Blitz

I worked with four different phase two classes from Seven Hills School before Easter to help them bring alive their topic on World War II. Each class chose a different aspect of the war and wrote a script for a short film. We filmed using the green screen, both at the CLC and in school, and added voiceovers, backgrounds and music. The finished films were:

  • 2BT – Evacuation
  • 2SM – The Blitz: with information on  the different types of shelters.
  • 2DS – D Day: including poems written by the pupils.
  • 2JL – Rationing: with dishes cooked by the students based on wartime recipes.

Using the green screen was a great way to put the students into an era very different to their own, and helped them to understand how life was for young people at the time.
