SILVER SCREEN: Children have been taking their lessons to the cinema to help celebrate the National Youth Film Festival. St Mary's Catholic Primary School, in Newcastle, secured free tickets to treat every pupil to a film experience this week. First it was the turn of the older children, who went to see the 3D film Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
They were asked to dress up as their favourite film character.
Infant pupils watched The Croods at the cinema yesterday. And the foundation stage children gathered in the main school hall to watch a film on their new projector.
St Mary's staff are following up the films by organising special literacy and creative arts lessons back at school. From left, Maddison Hennings, aged nine; Joe Bayley; Cody Matthews; and Eloise Laidlaw, all aged 10.
