Welcome to Bigfoot Arts Education TV; a new digital platform using the magic of film to bring some of Bigfoot’s most popular Performance & Assembly programmes into ALL classrooms, school halls and homes!
We first filmed our Year 6 Transition Film Upwards & Onwards to great success, and have since been busily building our reportoire in order to provide students with high quality film stimulus from which to further explore important topics and issues.
Films can be fully downloaded to screen or uploaded to the school website from here: bigfootartseducationtv.vhx.tv/products
TRANSITION; Upwards & Onwards
BLACK HISTORY; All Aboard The Empire Windrush
Meet Clinton and his Mum as they say goodbye to their homeland and prepare for a new life in post-war Britain. What will they miss? Why are they starting a new life in the ‘Motherland’? And what was life like on board the Empire Windrush in 1948? Celebrating over 70 years since the ship first docked at Tilbury in Essex, the story of the Empire Windrush marks the foundations of multi-cultural Britain, which raises a number of important issues for modern society.
BLACK HISTORY; Africa My Story
We are delighted to invite you on a beautifully rich and vibrant journey with us into the depths of Africa and the Caribbean, with Mama Africa- she is guaranteed to captivate you all! From warm and colourful childhood days spent with friends, to the darkest of days during the slave trade, be prepared to smile, laugh, and even cry as Mama Africa shares with you with the stories of her ancestors; can you help to ensure that the story of their lives and heritage will live on?
BLACK HISTORY; Come An' See Anansi
When Anansi is brought to life and drops into your school, be prepared for a lively story adventure! Weaving and spinning colourful tales from the shores of the Caribbean and Africa, this cunning half man- half spider is a well known story character and the ultimate trickster. Said to be a master of disguise, deception and illusion the Anansi you will meet is an amalgamation of the myths, a larger than life storyteller with a cheeky manner and cunning wit! Watch Anansi share, and star in, his own stories and perhaps help him learn a lesson or two….
ANTI BULLYING; Choose Respect
Schools can now opt to buy in a professional ﬁlmed version of our popular anti-bullying assembly performance ‘Choose Respect':
“I used to think that it was all about me; that perhaps I wasn’t behaving in the right way and so some people just couldn’t help but not like me. But I’m not so sure that that’s actually true…” (Sahar, Age 9)
‘Choose Respect’ takes an in depth look at how we manage relationships, respond to conﬂict and celebrate our diﬀerences. By utilising a variety of characters we skilfully present real stories that explore how we can respect each other, and ourselves, through our behaviour, language and actions. What is empathy and how do we show it? How can we stand up for ourselves, and each other, safely? And how can we respect each other – at home, school and online?
