Stickney Church of England Primary School was one of only 2 schools in Lincolnshire to be presented with the Film Mark Award by actor Jim Broadbent at the prestigious LAFTAs ceremony in Lincoln this week.
The whole school got involved in filmmaking over the year, these were celebrated with a special Film Showcase afternoon in the Summer Term, where the whole school watched the class' films and even enjoyed ice creams during the interval.
Classes used film to enhance writing in Literacy and children used film across the curriculum to demonstrate their learning.
The Cinematheque Project, consisting of 6 Key Stage 2 children, contributed towards the Stickney's achievement of the filmmark award. The project involved children all over Europe creating films relating to prescribed guidelines. The weekly film club worked together to plan, script, direct and film for five months. In June, the children went to London where their film was shown at the British Film Industry. The group also stood on stage and answered a series of questions about the making of their film 'The Great Race'.
