FilmClub takes place on Wednesdays in Y5 after school, from 3.15 - 5.15. It is run by Mrs. Littlewood & Mrs. Fairhurst for children in Y4, Y5 & Y6. Children come along to watch and review a wide variety of films. We also take pupils to the national film festival (last year we took part in a q & a session with some of the actors from 'Believe') and we held our own film festival as well last year too!
If you think this could be for you, then see Mrs. Littlewood or Mrs. Fairhurst for a permission form. We also sell popcorn at a very reasonable rate!

FILM CLUB AMASSADOR NEWS!
We were delighted to hear two more of our members have been selected as members to the Youth Advisory Council. Sam Glover-Smith & Ruby Jolley received news of their successful applications in July and will be joining Harry Turner and Ciara Baxter who are continuing as part of the team, as they leave St. Catherine's for high school. We know they will be a great success and look forward to hearing about their work.
Harry and Ciara were very busy last year on the Youth Advisory Council! As part of the team, they were involved in making a film expressing their opinion of film club as well as what goes on. This film was shown as part of GMOFF (Greater Manchester On Film Festival). They discussed the IntoFilm website - what pupils use it for, how it is accessed, how it can be made more child-friendly - as part of improving the site. Both students also wrote reviews, and looked at IntoFilm's YouTube account and it's potential uses. As a reward for all their hard work to date, and as representatives of our school club - Mad About Movies :-) - Harry and Ciara were invited to the IntoFilm awards in Leicester Square in March, followed by a party in Planet Hollywood!
This took place during the last week of the Whit term, as part of Olympics week. Films screened were:
Turbo the Snail
Our special event screening, organised by Film Club members, was The Mighty Ducks. Thank you to all pupils and parents who came along, wearing sports tops! It was a fun event and we welcomed some new members.
On the 18th November we visited the national film festival next month, to watch a screening of Shaun the Sheep. There was a post-screening talk with the lead animator from Aardman Animations, Will Becher. He brought some of the puppets used in the making of the film and gave a short talk before the film. After the film, there was an opportunity to ask questions and view the models up close. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet a professional from the film & animation industry and has inspired us to create our stop-start animations.
In December, we showed three Christmas themed films - Nativity!, A Christmas Carol and Santa Paws. We also entered the FilmClub Christmas Quiz. FilmClub UK received a high number of entries and were very impressed with the outstanding scores and film knowledge of everyone who took part! Congratulations to Ruby Barnes who scored 41 out of 49 points! Your certificate is in the post!
