Widey Court Primary School are involved in an exciting project which spans all of Europe called Erasmus+. Booktrailers and Videostorytelling: How to teach and learn reading appreciation.
The project is designed to improve standards of reading and computing by creating Book trailers.
As part of this project, children have been working on various aspects to create a videos to be presented at a *MEET workshop and film festival in Plymouth in which European countries are attending.
This takes place in March between 20th -24th . Children and teachers from Greece, Spain, Italy, Romania and Latvia have also been working towards creating book trailers.
Widey Court Primary School is hosting its own festival, inviting schools including our European partner counties to attend our school, showcasing children’s work and providing opportunities for education and development of skills to other colleagues and children.
Last term, the children were creating book trailers based such as ‘ 'The Twits, Lost and Found’, and many more.
The festival will include a procession/parade with the children involved in the project walking from the Plaza to the REEL Cinema to view the finalist booktrailers, followed by the awards ceremony.
This is a great opportunity to showcase Plymouth on the international stage as many of the participants and delegates are visiting this part of the UK for the first time.
