The children of Wootton Bassett.

Keeping with the theme of Wootton Bassett, with a great deal of help from both Subrosa's "This Week at Wootton Bassett" and Old Rightie's  "Out of the mouths of babes". (You really should read both of these before continuing, otherwise you won't have a clue what this is about.)

Mrs Rigby would like to help you find the video the young people of Wootton Bassett School  made for the BBC's "School Report", which isn't, unfortunately, linked from the BBC's own news report about the children and their video (on Subrosa) - which seems a bit mean, so Mrs Rigby has decided to fix it.

There's no point in paraphrasing the school's own words, so it's best to send you off to their site to see what they did, and how much effort they put into making their video.

Mrs R eventually discovered the school's video, it was tucked deep inside the "School Report" pages. They say it's possible to "embed" BBC videos within personal sites, but as they don't provide the right sort of url they aren't altogether correct, so, sorry, you'll need to follow this link

"Wootton Bassett through our eyes" by students of Wootton Bassett School.

And if your eyes don't at least feel a bit gritty after watching that then you're more hard hearted than Mrs R.

What a star you are Mrs R. I'm going to put a comment on to link here.

Today is the English Mothering Sunday - it seems appropriate that the children make their 'gift' so close to it.

Maybe we should take a moment out of our busy days to remember the mothers who have lost their sons and daughters.
