Soundbeam Stories

Horace and Ned share their Orangemen creations inspired by their Soundbeam experiments.

Welcome to the Camp of Orangemen!

They are a group of soldiers who guard the Great Spider made out of bananas from the evil Domino chocolate men.  They speak a different language of veeekvorkveekaveekaveekwork and are incredibly noisy when they work.

Listen here to their soundscape:

And enjoy this video of documenting their work, exploring visual and word descriptions of the characters and playing with nonsense language and sentence structure.

Ned and Horace also give us an insight into working with Soundbeam as assistive technology:

LDC Interviews

This time, LDC Year 6’s generate questions together to pose to Dyslexic adults!

We discuss how adults might be able to give us an insight into learning, how different their experiences might be depending on their jobs and choices and we are curious to know things like what their favourite books are.  How is being an adult with dyslexia any different to being a child or any different in general?

 

Dea’s Adventure Story

This term Dea has been working on a project about rabbits!  We started off by identifying reasons why she is interested in the subject, working through spellings and breaking up the process of creating a story.

Making an mnemonic (a device for remembering something – in this case a spelling) of Adventure Story, we used the words generated to form a story about rabbits, elephants, oranges and umbrellas!  To accompany this story, Dea worked on a stop motion animation and used Soundbeam Assistive Technology to create a soundscape.
