THEMES

LINCOLN CHRIST'S HOSPITAL SCHOOL, Lincoln, Lincolnshire
"Out of the Mouths of Babes"

    Fairytales, Nursery Rhymes and Fables are told to children all over the world, but have you ever wondered what the true meanings of these tales are? Maybe they are not as innocent as they seem to be? Watch as Lincoln Christ's Hospital School takes you on a journey to the more sinister meanings of traditional children?s stories.

MATTHEW HUMBERSTONE SCHOOL, Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire
"Blood Diamond"

    We highlight the plight of the Africans forced to mine diamonds by rebel militias. The diamonds are traded illegally and the money is used to buy weapons that cause further misery. Some of the diamonds find their way into the legitimate market, but would customers be so happy if they knew that the stones had been paid for in blood ?

NORTH KESTEVEN SCHOOL, Lincoln, Lincolnshire
"Choose"

    The single clenched fist lifted and ready,
    Or the open, asking hand held out and waiting.
    Choose: for we meet by one or the other.

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"

    There are important messages and morals within Snow White, which we portray through a new and stylised version of the traditional story. Our version represents the concepts of companionship, love, loss and reconciliation, shown through Dance, Drama and Music.
