RED CARPET MOVIE PREMIERE – Thursday 26th June 2.00pm

Parents of all children in school are invited to bring their cameras and join us for the ‘movie premiere’ on Thursday afternoon. This is the exciting culmination of several weeks work and we would like all children to join in by coming to school in their smart clothes (or getting changed at lunchtime).Boys might like to wear a tie or dickie bow and girls their party dresses.

At 2.00pm parents will be able to come into the hall and photograph the children as they enter from the classrooms and walk down the red carpet to present their work.

Y4, Y5,and Y6 will be sharing/ presenting the work from their Arts Award Project. This joint project with Ashover Primary has been funded by a grant from ‘Mighty Creatives’. Sara Giddens from’ Mighty Creatives’ will be joining us during the afternoon to see the children’s work and to meet with staff to evaluate the project.The children have taken part in various workshops including film, animation and photography. They have then worked in groups to plan and make either a short film, animation or photographic slideshow. These have been edited together into a short film presentation to be shared on Thursday afternoon. (We are hoping the DVD will be available for parents to order their own copy at £3.80 each) We would like to thank Howard Pratt and Tupton Hall School for sharing their ICT facilities and resources and Tupton Hall students who supported the animation ‘Inspire’ workshops on 6th June.

Rec/ Y1, Y2 and Y3 will also be sharing their short film which is being entered into the National Society Church of England competition. The theme is about what makes a church school distinctive. The children talk about their learning and the christian values that underpin our school ethos eg creativity, perseverance. (After the competition has been judged in July, the film will be available to view on our school website.)

After the presentations there will be refreshments and a chance to look at the children’s Arts Award log books which record the Y4,5,6 children’s Arts Award journey. Children may go home with an adult after the presentations. Any children who do not have a parent attending will stay in school to be collected as usual at 3.30pm. Please let us know in advance if your child will be leaving early with another adult. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you on the 26th at 2.00pm.
