Hi Mr WEBB !
We are having our movies competition at the same time on Friday. Every class has to make one based on the theme- Go for Green. Year 6 kids have to make thier own individual movie. We are the juniors, so the teacher makes the movie.

What a shame that we weren't allowed to enter this competition, what a great idea and you have to let us know what happens when they're done - I cant wait for the link.

Well Mr Webb !
It's a school thing ad I don't think they intend to have outsiders to be part of it. You are welcome to come to watch it though !
