Film Week

Film Week came again to HBJS! This year we spent the week exploring the Pixar film Inside Out which ignited the imagination of the teachers and children through looking at the wonderful world inside our heads. It kicked off with our first every film night, which was a huge success (especially due to the sweets and hot dogs!). The children then spent the week immersed in all things film and explored the themes of emotions, growing up, dreams and memories across all curriculum areas. It was amazing to see the children learning to understand different feelings and those of others and start to communicate more freely to their peers and adults around them. Across the school, learning took many forms ranging from producing performance poetry to persuasive letters encouraging lost emotions to return. Design projects built momentum as memory boxes, memory orbs and dream catchers filled the classrooms. To round off a fantastic week, the whole school cam together to celebrate each year group's creations and kick of children's mental health awareness which took place the following week.
