Before half-term, Holbrook Primary School, Horsham welcomed Stanley and a CBBC film crew to film a collection of video clips for the popular children’s TV show Saturday Mash-Up.
The film crew were based at Holbrook all day with the new (puppet) presenter Stanley who came to experience life in Year 4 classroom in a primary school. Both children and staff were fascinated to watch how the crew filmed the clips and learnt a lot about the roles that each crew member had as part of a team. Amazingly, the whole day of filming only produced a short three and a half minute video that was shown on the popular Saturday morning show.
“It was a great day for everyone involved,” said Ian Holmes, Head teacher, “The crew were extremely professional and it was very exciting for the children to see themselves and their school on national television.”
The clip can be seen in BBC i-Player Series 3:Episode 2, 1 hour and 4 mins in.
