Parental Engagement Evening – 33 period week
Please click here for responses to the questions asked at the Parental Engagement Evening on Tuesday 9 January 2018. Thank you to all who attended the evening.
As you may have seen recently on national TV, one of our S2 pupils, Rory Milne has won a Blue Peter competition. This involved designing a prehistoric creature that could work well as an animation – in line with the new Nick Park film being released in January, ‘Early Man’. Nick Park has chosen Rory’s design as the overall winner out of over 9000 entries! This is a massive achievement and Rory has spent the day at the Aardman Animation Studio in Bristol, working with the team including Nick Park. Rory also spent time being part of the filming process in the Blue Peter studio where he met the cast and crew of the film and attending the premiere. He then had the chance to meet and interview Nick Park and many of the actors from Early Man, plus attend the film’s preview with them. This has been such a brilliant achievement for him. Rory has been sought after by the press and he describes this as an amazing experience. Well done Rory!
