Year 3 to Year 5 were privileged to visit Camberley cinema on Tuesday to watch ‘Mary and The Witch’s Flower’. This is part of the annual ‘Into Film Festival’ which hopes to ‘inspire young people to watch, understand and make film in new and creative ways’.
A schoolgirl Mary spends the summer at her great aunt’s, but the holidays become more interesting when she’s swept away on a flying broomstick to the magical Endor College. It was full of drama and action. Even at the beginning it kicks off with an eye-popping sequence, in which a young witch makes a daring escape from a blazing fortress, pursued through the sky by evil flying creatures.
The children thought ‘It was thrilling stuff’ and ‘Jaw dropping’.
Year 4 and Year 5 will be using the film as a stimulus for their English work – will they be producing their own fantasy adventures?
