“We are very lucky this year to welcome MED THEATRE back to work on an exciting drama project for Year 6 students. We will be making and producing a short film. We will work together on a story then take turns to star in it, go behind the camera to shoot the action and record the sound and dialogue.”
The youngsters clearly enjoyed the whole event and wrote some brilliant feedback.

Wolborough – Ruth Oakley
Ruth is well known in Teignbridge schools as a visiting artist, and on this occasion was engaged by Wolborough School, Newton Abbot to work with the pupils on large-scale posters based on the tree of life concept.
The children cut out and pasted a selection of natural forms onto a large skeleton tree and made flower shapes using simple paper and card materials for the background. The final effect was remarkable.
The atmosphere is the classroom was intense and creative: everyone was delighted by the outcome.
