Later on in the week, the BAFTA Roadshow paid a visit to another lucky Place2Be primary school in Dundee.
Claypotts Castle Primary School was joined by TV presenters Ben Shires and Aoife Wilson (Eurogamer, BAFTA Games). Ben and Aoife presented a special assembly themed around film, games and TV.
The children took part part in a game play workshop with Harry Petch, an Abertay University student and 2021 winner of the BAFTA Young Game Designers Mentor Award. Media company, DC Thomson, also supported the day by providing copies of 110% Gaming to all students.
What is the BAFTA Roadshow?
The BAFTA Roadshow aims to teach essential life skills through film, games, and television.
Children who participate in the Roadshows are given the opportunity to learn soft skills that help with their emotional wellbeing. They enjoy a brilliant day full of activities including competitions, masterclasses, workshops, and round table discussions.
These activities grant children access to creative talent and positive role models, while raising awareness and encouraging the diversity of young people interested in a career in arts and media.
