Spilsby Primary pupils spent a day creating and performing silent movies as part of a school topic .

The Year 4 children had expert help and advice from Andrew Cunnington who graduated in physical theatre from East 15 Acting School at the University of Essex and performed all over Europe and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Andrew spent the day showing the children how to give a performance using only their body and facial expressions. At the end of the day each group created a silent movie to perform to the class.

The pupils gave the thumbs up to the session part of their Playlist topic covering performing arts.

Aaron said: “I enjoyed it when we all sat down and Andrew acted to the different types of music.”

“I enjoyed coming up with ideas to write the script for the performance,” added Charlotte.

Lara said:“I enjoyed doing the performance with my group at the end,”.
