After lots of hard work, muddy wellies, stories, noise and fun, here is the film we made with the brilliant Altarnun Primary School over the past term-

During a farm visit to Rosehip Barn at Trefranck Farm in St.Clether, children learnt about the history of the farm through the digital story ‘The Cats of Trefranck’ and explored the farm through movement, art and storytelling. The children then worked with choreographer and dancer Gemma Kempthorne, whose family runs the farm, to choreograph a dance based on the movement they saw around the farm, as well as the stories they had heard about it’s past. This film features the choreographed group dance, as well as the children’s moving interpretation of the grain dryer that was once in the barn. The end section shows year 3 & 4 weaving stories onto sheep hurdles.
