Photos and Video Histories

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.

Recording Stories

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!
