Studio 5 were tasked with creating new episodes of Portal! Mr Jarvis, Olive’s second in command asked the producers to research a number of things to include in the programme. The Ancient Egyptians were to feature heavily and the producers found out all about life then. They also investigated Ancient Egyptian gods and godesses.
The producers also carried out investigations related to forces. They discovered balanced and unbalanced forces, water and air resistance and gravity. Mr Jarvis also ask the producers to include research about on of Olive’s favourite artists, Jackie Gale; a textile artist. The producers even had a go at learning to sew and create their own textile artworks!
As part of their research into Ancient Egypt, they also read an abridged version of Shakespeare’s ‘Antony and Cleopatra’.
Outside of our work at Station Studios, we started a project called ‘Genius Hour’. During this project pupils will choose what we want to learn about and how they want to present it. A few examples include, a new book about Harry Potter Characters, a website about gaming tips and advice and creating a remote control car.
