Kingsbridge Primary School pupils have made their directorial debut at Harbour House, with a film screening of The Fateful Feast at Castle Froglington

A group of pupils from Kingsbridge Primary School, part of Education South West, have recently had their directorial debut with a film screening at local arts and wellbeing centre,  Harbour House.

The film named The Fateful Feast at Castle Froglington was shown to staff from the school and families of the children at the school earlier this month.

The children have dubbed their group ‘The Creative Common’ and their film was a murder mystery with a host of unusual characters, from Detective Pineapple to Princess Britney.

The children made up the spooky story for the film and took part in creating the puppets and backgrounds needed for it to come to life. They also took part in the editing and narration. 

A spokesperson for the school, said: "At Kingsbridge Primary School, they believe that the arts are vital in developing the child as a whole and supports the delivery of an inspiring environment that gives children the best early education possible.

"Art and design is an important part of children’s education and has a significant and valuable role in the taught curriculum, as well as the enrichment opportunities they offer their pupils.

"Harbour House have kindly funded an after-school art club for creatively minded children and are continuing to promote arts in the community with some Kingsbridge Community College students coming along to the centre soon for some soundscape workshops.

"Harbour House’s mission is to enrich the lives of the people in Kingsbridge and surrounding communities through art, creativity, and wellbeing practices. They achieve this through an inspiring and inclusive programme of exhibitions, performances and educational activities that invite everyone to participate."

Gareth Howells Headteacher at Kingsbridge Primary School said: "I want to say a big thank you to everyone at Harbour House for funding this after school club and for supporting our pupils to make their film.  I know they loved doing it and got so much out of the project."

Beth Richards at Harbour House said: "As the Education and Engagement Curator at Harbour House, I am delighted that the Kingsbridge Primary pupils have been taking part in our after-school arts club. It was wonderful to watch them work on this film and see how excited they were as their vision came to fruition."

Matthew Shanks, CEO of Education South West said: "It’s brilliant to hear how much the children enjoyed making their film and I really appreciate those at Harbour House who not only helped them make the film, but also organised for it to be screened.  

"It’s so important that children are encouraged to explore their creative side and I hope that this is just the start of a wonderful partnership."
