Pupils and parents praise the Primary Project Pixar

We were delighted to welcome back so many pupils who had taken part in our Primary Project Pixar at our Film Awards ceremony this week.

The Pixar Primary programme is aimed at Year 5 pupils to give them some insight into life at secondary school. Pupils took part in a number of activities including Producing Props, the Science of Cinema and Getting Fit for Film as well as Cooking up a Storm.

Dr Morrison, the headteacher, said ‘Taking part in the project eases Year 5 pupils’ future transition to ‘big school’. They gain valuable experience interacting with peers from other schools. They have produced some excellent work and also had a lot of fun along the way.’

This is the third year the programme has been run at Bradon Forest with the number of pupils taking part increasing year on year. Pupils took part from schools in Swindon, Cricklade, Wootton Bassett and Purton including Abbeymeads, Bridlewood, Brookfield, Catherine Wayte, Greenmeadow, Haydon Wick, Haydonleigh, Longleaze, Lydiard Millicent, Moredon, Oakhurst, Orchid Vale, Peatmoor, Red Oaks, Ridgeway Farm, Rodbourne Cheney, St Francis, St Sampson’s and St Mary's.

Mr Johnson, Head of Year 7 and Transition Leader said ‘Thank you to all of the pupils who have attended the Pixar sessions. It has been wonderful to see so many of you growing in confidence and developing new skills. I would like to thank parents and carers who have taken the time to bring their children over to the school. Without their efforts, it would be incredibly difficult for the programme to run as smoothly. And finally I would like to thank the staff who have taken the time to organise and deliver the sessions. It has been a great success!’
