Choir at Luton Airport!

Last Friday our wonderful school choir sang in the lobby of Luton Airport to raise money for Macmillan. The children sang so well and lots of people stopped in their tracks to watch them, producing a lot of smiles!!


A massive well done to the children for bringing so much festive cheer to people from all over the world! Check out our short video below.


Filmmaker Damon Gameau Visits!


We recently had the director of the movie ‘2040’ visit us here at St Matthew’s! Damon Gameau kindly agreed to come and spend the morning with us after we met him at the premiere of the Into Film Festival in London.

While he was here, he showed clips of his film to Years 4, 5 and 6 and talked about them. The children had such fantastic questions in response! Our Eco Team then hosted a summit where they laid out ideas for moving forward as a more eco friendly school.

You can see the trailer for Damon’s movie ‘2040’ below.

2040 Premiere Documentary

On the 6th November we attended the opening of the Into Film Festival where we watched the premiere of the new movie 2040 by director Damon Gameau. We were lucky enough to meet Damon at the screening and even arrange for him to come and visit St Matthew’s.

To document the day we captured footage and the children provided some interviews to camera and voiceover work once back at school. Take a look below.

Marvellous Mini-Sing!

In September Year 2 began learning 8 songs in preparation for the Marvellous Mini Sing. The children had great fun learning a fantastic range of songs. From classics like ‘Do Re Mi’ to the spooky favourite ‘Creepy Castle’, the children worked hard to learn them all in time for the event.

They sang with around 500 other children from schools across Luton! Take a look at our film and pictures from the day below.
