Some of our talented Year 5 children took part in a wonderful reading project organised by Miss Major at Cockshut Hill Secondary School.
The children attended a number of exciting sessions at Cockshut and worked with some of the lovely Year 8 pupils there.
All of the children did work around a book called 'Scream Street' written by the author Tommy Donbavand - they even got to take part in a really inspiring creative writing workshop with Mr Donbavand himself!!
The children recreated scenes from the book by using art and craft materials and filmed animations using state of the art ICT equipment. They then edited what they had filmed to make animations that we could all watch.
The 'Scream Street' book series has been made in a TV series which will air on ITV in November this year - we are hoping to go back to Cockshut Hill to watch the first episode with the students and Miss Major.
A truly wonderful project - thank you to Miss Major, Mrs Joyce and all of the fantastic Year 8 students - you really did your school proud.
Well done to all of The Oval pupils who took part as well - you did an amazing job and represented our school brilliantly (as always)!
