Rivers Project - Photos and Narration

As part of a study on rivers we have been looking at our local river; The Ore. The children have been looking at where they live in relation to the river and why settlements such as Framlingham, Aldeburgh and Orford have developed close to a river. We also noticed that many towns and villages get part of their name from the river. Suffolk is famous for its village signs. Many of the villages on the River Ore have images to do with the river. We have photos of some of these signs and have designed our own village signs. We photographed them so that they could be used as part of the films the children are making about the stages of a river.







































The children also wrote and talked about what their villages signs represent. Some of these have been recorded using a digital MP3 recorder. This narration can then be added to the film.

The example below shows a photograph combined with a narration by a child.....
