Pupils at Higham Ferrers Junior School attended a very special premiere of films they made themselves.

Over the past two months, 360 pupils have produced 12 adventure films with the help of primary literacy company A Tale Unfolds. They were presented with awards for their efforts by Jack Ashton, star of BBC’s Call the Midwife. He said: “It was fantastic to see how excited everyone in the school was.

“The whole place was buzzing.”
