‘Dream Big’ is message of Cottingley video

Cottingley Primary Academy has made a video to celebrate Christmas and everyone’s hard work through the year.

Cottingley is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust, which operates 66 schools across the country. Each year the trust runs a Christmas video competition and this year staff at Cottingley decided to enter.

The theme of the video is “Dream Big” as the school is always encouraging the children to be ambitious and aim high. The Dream Big scene at the end includes all the children and was photographed from the top of Cottingley Towers. The photos of the children throughout the video show the range of talents and skills they have which they develop across the curriculum.

Everyone took part in the video: the dinner ladies, office staff, cleaners, caretaker, support staff, teachers, senior leadership team, parents, children. The children took part in a giant conga line through school.

The video was all put together by IT co-ordinator and Year 2 teacher Miss Ewart.
