War of the Worlds

Our 'War of the Worlds' inspired ‘Alien Invasion’ project is delivered during the two induction days. Students will take part in a number of exciting activities such as creating a drama piece. Student will work collaboratively to devise a performance in the style of a newsflash along with producing a radio broadcast. During ‘Alien Invasion’ students complete a series of numeric code breaking activities. These activities allow students to further develop ideas and rules which explain the problem.

Within this project, students retell the story of the War of the Worlds in an interesting and creative manner. They use musical instruments which they have created as part of their flipped homework and the activity will allow students to work on their Creative Competencies. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their team building skills as well as Literacy and Technological competencies.

Wildest of the wild, is a inter house activity competition. During Induction, students will be expected to work as a form to decide which student is competing in a variety of events during Summer School Phase One. Activities range from athletic events, football matches and games which will attract all.

A knowledge of the radio play and film War of the Worlds will be helpful for when students attend the Induction days.

"I found Alien Invasion fun because we made our own instruments and then used them to create sound effects for our own radio play".
