Pupils enjoy cinema visit

Children from an Exmouth school got to enjoy the delights of the silver screen for free as part of National Schools Film Week.

The pupils, from Beacon C of E Primary School, went to a showing of hit computer animation Rio at the Savoy Cinema.

Around 150 pupils from Key Stage One and Two attended.

School headteacher Sue Lockwood said: “We were fortunate enough to be selected to participate in National Film Week and we were delighted to give the children the opportunity for a cinema visit.

“The children had a fabulous time – they really enjoyed themselves.”

National Schools Film Week is organised by the charity Film Education, which promotes the cinema as a way to teach children about culture.
