Rabbits... camera... ACTION! Wildlife Film making at Folly Farm

We had a great week with a group of year 5 and 6 pupils from a Wembley school, who visited Folly Farm on a residential trip.
The group completed a range of activities including learning about contrasting habitats, bush craft skills, evening owl and badger watching and setting mammal traps; however, the standout activity of the week was the wildlife film making day.
The group had one day to script, shoot and edit a wildlife film. The groups quickly organised themselves into documentary teams, assigning a director, producer, sound person, camera person and narrator. Each team chose a theme such as 'wildlife at Folly Farm' or 'food chains'  to  create a short documentary.

We luckily had a gorgeous sunny Spring day, which showed off the amazing wildlife at Folly Farm. The teams did a great job! We may have witnessed wildlife presenters in the making!
Don't take our word for it- have a look yourself!!
