Welcome to

Exton & Greetham CE Primary School

Lights, Camera, Action!

On Tuesday the children in Cobalt and Navy classes had a fantastic time exploring the world of television. This was a unique chance to work with a professional TV production crew and enjoy a whistle-stop experience of creating their own piece of television. The project enabled the children to  get hands-on experience with cameras, lights, sound and even editing software.


The day started with an introduction to some of the many activities and roles that go together to create a TV programme, from acting and presenting roles to practical work with cameras, sound and post-production software.


During the morning the children had the opportunity to create short news broadcasts filmed on green screen, with the accompanying sound, which they then edited. 


The afternoon was spent learning about the use of drones in filming and capturing aerial photography, as well as looking at techniques for capturing interviews. At the end of the day we were able to take the whole school outside and use the drones to take pictures of the children, staff and the school itself using the drone.


An amazing day was had by all, and we look forward to receiving the final results. 

A huge thank you to Resilient Rutland who provided the funding for this event.
