As well as Leigh, the children will be working


with Director of Dance Sam Biddulph and John Bowman, Musical Director, and throughout the day the activities will be captured on video by Director of Film Paul Martin. Paul’s footage will be edited and sent to each


school to share with the children and snippets from all the schools will be used to create a Nene Education Trust fi lm that encapsulates the whole project. Matt Coleman, Director of Primary Education with the Nene Education Trust, said: “We are so excited about seeing what the children come up with. We very much believe in what we call our Whole Child Project, which is not just about academic achievement but to celebrate all the things that children are good at and make sure they have plenty of fun as they go through their education. “It’s too easy for the focus of a school to become


very narrow and centred on grades and results. Children do have a lot to catch up on after months of disruption and home schooling, but we believe they should be catching up on the fun times, getting back together with their friends and picking up those social skills again. “T ey will catch up on the academic stuff . It’s


not life-changing to ‘miss out’ on that at primary age and we have every confi dence in our teachers and support staff to help the children get to where they need to. Missing out on the memories and the special, fun times could be far worse.” Each school will split the children into three


groups and each group will get a chance to take part in dance, drama and songwriting. At the end of each day, everyone will come back together for a celebration of what they have achieved. Leigh said: “All credit to Nene Education Trust


because what they are doing is wonderful. Children need to be creative to make sense of what they have experienced, to unpick their time at school and think about what words defi ne that time, and how they can express that in song, dance or theatre. “Particularly given the disruption they have had during the past year, I think it’s important to try to remind them what school was like in those years before the pandemic hit, and to remind them what it is like to be in a room with their friends having fun. “T e great thing about the arts is being in the


room. Yes, you can do sessions online, but when you’re all together and you feel that buzz, there’s nothing that can beat that. T e arts, which were already facing cuts and underfunding, have taken another massive hit this past year and it will be exciting to get children fi red up about the creative side of life again.”
