The International Film Festival for Children

November 18, 2015

In November, Year 4 was lucky enough to take attend of the International Film Festival for children. Our children went to two of the films available and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of watching these handpicked films. On Friday, November the 13th they watched Molly Moon and once back in school had a chance to have a debriefing about this very interesting, and sometimes sad, film.  On Tuesday, November 17th our students watched Song of the Sea.  This is a beautiful animation film that takes place in Ireland and touches some interesting subjects, such as the loss of a parent and the importance of being a good sibling.  Both films enabled the class to gather ideas to write a Story from Another Culture.  What a great experience!
