We run a Film Club for all the children on a Wednesday after school, once a fortnight.
The films shown will start at 3.30pm and finish at approximately 5.30pm.
All films are with a U or PG Certificate and there is a different film shown every fortnight. The children can select a particular film to watch or may come to each session if they prefer.
Each FILMCLUB session costs £2.50; this will include the film and refreshments. If a family has more than one child, the cost will be £2.50 for the first child and £2.00 for each child after that. All monies received from this FILMCLUB will be used for resources within the school.
Letters promoting the film to be shown are sent home with your child on a Friday. These need to be completed in advance. If the return slip and money has not been returned by the morning of the show, your child will NOT be allowed to watch the film and will need to be collected. ALL payments are to be handed to the School Office for the attention of Mrs Maxwell.
Please note that all children will need to be collected at the end of the club by an adult at the School Office entrance.
The FILMCLUB is designed to show films that are family favourites or that children may not have seen before. There will be some films which are modern and some that are classics. From time to time a film may be shown that many children have seen before but it may be relevant for a particular age group and link in with their literacy work for example, allowing discussion and exploration. A FILMCLUB allows both children and teachers to explore new worlds, new cultures and new languages through 100 years of films. As well as providing children with great stories, the club will bring a film culture to young people in a creative and engaging way.
Last year certain films were chosen to reflect on topics the children were studying. 'Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2', 'Mulan 1 and 2' and 'Spirited Away' were all chosen as they were about stories from other cultures which is a large part of the Literacy curriculum. 'Great Expectations' was viewed as it had a historical setting (Victorians) and was originally a novel by Charles Dickens (significant author). Finally towards the end of the year 'Cool Runnings' and 'Racing Stripes' were watched as they are inspiring stories with a Sport/Olympic theme.
We look forward to seeing you there.
