This year is going to be the BEST year ever.
By Mollie Starkey Archiver
Our last archive after school club of the term was all about finishing up and planning for next year.
Mollie, Harley, Sam, Sophie and Jessica worked hard on the photo albums, counting and measuring photos in preparation for the new non-plastic albums they will go into in the new year.
Ashfaq carried on uploading photos to the drive to add to the newest archive collection which is Cosford School Visit. This will include video histories of the children’s experiences at the RAF museum. Mr Philp also popped in to show us how to upload the video histories directly to our catalogue so they will be digitally available.
It has been a great term at Paganel Archives, archiving and preserving of existing records and lots of ideas for archive projects that will continue to document the life of the school and community.
On the 18-11-14 in archives this is what we got up to.
Harley our fellow archiver is getting up to some important work, she’s taking photos out of plastic folders because unfortunatey the plastic is making the photos melt.
Sophie and Sam other fellow archivers are writing down questions about how you interview people ; which is a very important job.
Ashfaq our other fellow archiver is uploading pictures of our trip to the air museum so that we can blog all about it and put photos in the archive room.
Jessica another fellow archiver is getting interviewed about our old amazing trip to Stansfeld.
In our archive club we get up to many fun activities including interviews.interviews are one of the main things in the archive club they are important because it tells people how diffirent children felt about certain activities on their side of the story.

This week, as well as carrying on with our photo rescuing, we have been practising recording oral histories in preparation for our next project.
The team is keen to record the stories of their peers, particularly the year 5 residential trip to Stansfeld and their own year group’s recent trip to RAF Cosford.
We worked out some open questions to ask students and some follow up questions to get more information. We also worked out that we needed a quiet space to record in and a calm encouraging interviewing style.
The nexus tablets are great for video recording so look forward to a new set of video recordings of Paganel students in our archives soon!
Our new archive after school club team have been coming for just 3 weeks and they’ve already got to grips with the box of horrors (all archives have at least one) to sort and catalogue.
They’ve also started to use the new nexus tablets that the project bought to support with the e-catalogue.
Mollie, Sophie, Sam, Ashfaq, Harley and Jessica will be posting soon to let you know more about Paganel Archives and what they’re up to so please keep following.
Our archive is going to open on the 28th of June 2013!
Every one in Paganel Primary School in year 5 has been working on clearing the archive room and have been putting everything in the right order, cataloguing everything and we have also made a guide.
Every one in year 5 went to the archive in town. We had to put on gloves when we were holding things (because things were very old and easily broken).
Now we have our own archive of the school and our local area and all the people here.
