Brackenfield Well Dressings

This page is in the process of being updated, please visit our well dressing pages on our old web site for any missing information.

Every year children from the School contribute to the Brackenfield Well Dressings. The well dressings coincide with a flower festival in Brackenfield Church and are on display during the May Spring Bank Holiday (28-30 May, 2016). This year’s theme is ‘Bible Stories’ and our board depicts the story of ‘David and Goliath’.

The Making of a Well Dressing

Watch our film, ‘The Making of a Well Dressing’ made by Year 6 children for their entry to the Derbyshire Schools Digital Video Short Competition. All entries had to be filmed using a Digital Blue Movie Creator and edited using the software provided with it.

Together with other shortlisted schools, we attended an “Oscar Style” ceremony at County Hall Matlock. We were delighted to learn that we had been awarded 2nd place in the upper Junior category.

This video can also be viewed on YouTube.

Further information on how we make our well dressings can be found on our well dressing information page.
