GLAMOUR Hollywood-style came to a Sheffield school as pupils enjoyed a red carpet reception at an Oscars-style celebration.

It’s the second year running youngsters at Norfolk Community Primary have enjoyed the spotlight to mark the successful conclusion of a whole school film-making project.

A range of short films was premiered for parents and guests, subjects ranging from Henry VIII and his six wives and ancient Egypt, to documentaries on fire safety and crime.

The oldest pupils produced reviews of news and current affairs – including an exclusive about a tornado hitting Norfolk Park!

Headteacher Jane Hobley said the evening was even more successful than last year – with some very special guests to present the awards.

“We thought having Buzz Lightyear, Shrek and Princess Fiona on stage would mean more than having people in suits,” she said.

“The whole project is about developing language skills and we know that youngsters need to talk well before they can write. And they get so excited when they see themselves on film – it really boosts their self esteem.

“We thought that this year’s event couldn’t top the first one, but we were wrong. It was a fantastic occasion.”
