WELCOME TO THE VICTORIA PARK HOME LEARNING ZONE
This page is specially designed to help you continue learning with your child after the school day or when school is temporarily closed. It has resources for Literacy, Numeracy and World Around Us and we hope to update these to help you at home as much as possible. Within each area of learning, there are sub-pages which will link to appropriate resources for each year group in school.

Dear Parents & Young Movie Fans,
We are delighted to bring you our on-line screening film programme for children, families and young people.
IN A FUTURE DREAM, AN ANCIENT MYTH is a collection of thought-provoking short animations from the acclaimed ESMA School of 3D Animation and Special Effects. The renowned French animation college has produced multi-award winning animators and artists who have gone on to work on some of cinema’s biggest movies.
We have given the programme an age recommendation of 8+ (PG).
We have attached a PDF with the film synopsis and a film review sheet for any young reviewers who would like to write down their thoughts on each of the films and to give them a final score.
We would love you to send us in your reviews via email and we plan to post a number of them on our social channels. We would particularly love you to record any of your reviews on your phones/mobile devices and send them into us and again we will post up as many as we can. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the reviews.
The links are now live and will remain available for 5 days until 05/04/20. Please do not share the links with any third parties. We plan to have new programmes available each week over the next few months.
We are fully committed to continue to engage with our audiences at this testing time and provide regular creative content for young people and families. We would be very appreciative if you would continue to post on our social channels with your opinions on films and with any film related comments and views you have - and please do tell your friends about the opportunities on offer.
Finally we would like to think the filmmakers and animators who have allowed us to share their films with you.
