The Straw, The Bean and The Coal

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment

Great short film made by pupils at St Chad’s Primary School in Cheetham Hill inspired by “The Straw, The Bean and The Coal” written by Brothers Grimm. St Chads are a partner school who worked with us during the autumn term on a storytelling project inspired by the stories of the Brothers Grimm.

The pupils took place in ten storytelling workshops and used drama and creativity to develop their own self confidence and communication skills.


Adopt An Actor

December 15, 2009 Leave a comment

A big thank you to the following schools who have all been involved in our Adopt an Actor project this year:

St Peter’s RC Primary, Wythenshawe

Baguley Hall Primary, Wythenshawe

St Patrick’s RC Primary, Collyhurst

Abbot Community Primary, Collyhurst

Each school has been writing to an actor from the Grimm Tales cast, taking part in weekly workshops in their school and learning all about the Grimm Tales as part of the project. This week they came to the Library Theatre to watch a performance of Grimm Tales and meet their actor for a question and answer session.

It’s been a really brilliant project that wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support of World Duty Free at Manchester Airport.
