Talbot star in episode of Blue Peter 

On Friday 16th June, Talbot were invited by the BBC to be a part of an episode of ‘Blue Peter’.

Thirty children from within ‘Into Film’ club were randomly selected to come along to their studios in Media City, Salford, and take part in a live studio episode!

The trip was a huge success and all the children thoroughly enjoyed their day seeing first-hand how much is involved both in front and behind the scenes of the camera in creating media programmes, as well as meeting the presenters, all the crew and the celebrity guest, songwriter and performer Ellie Dixon.

The episode is still now available to watch on BBC iPlayer. If you have any questions about ‘Into Film’ club and what is involved visit www.intofilm.org/about or speak to Mr Clark..

Graffiti Art demonstration

In Summer 2023, Phil Tang, from Hello Hip-Hop, did a live graffiti demonstration to the children at Talbot Primary School. This is one of the four elements of the Hip-Hop culture and lifestyle he follows.

Phil explained the process in some detail: from coming up with initial ideas for a graffiti-style school banner, developing several of these as sketches, to refining his preferred one into a final design. This was all done at home over a period of time.

Phil hung black polythene between two trees to form his large, temporary canvass. Then he used his spray paints to mark-up, outline, block-fill, highlight and add finishing touches to his banner. The slide show opposite shows many of the stages. All the time, Phil explained how he was working so the children had a deeper understanding of the techniques he used. Phil was also careful to point out the differences between graffiti art and tagging, which is a form of vandalism that makes areas look less pleasant to live in.

The children loved the final design and it added a vibrant back-drop to the Sport, Health and Well-being Fair 2023.
