We all enjoyed watching Ponyo. Made by the great director Hayao Miyazaki, this Studio Ghibli film was a magical adventure story that captured all of our imaginations. The plot was about a goldfish named Ponyo who befriends a five-year-old human boy, Sōsuke. It follows her journey as she wants to become a human girl. The japanese animation was stunning and along with a sweet storyline we all thoroughly enjoyed this film.
Holly,8 rated the film 4 out of 5 stars. She said:
"I found this film was quiet weird because Ponyo is like a fish girl that likes human food also this is the first Japanese animation I have ever seen and you wonder how they make it so good. It would be a fascinating job. So i RECOMMEND it for friends and other clubs. :)"
Bear Brilliance! — Paddington was screened on 24th March and all of the new FilmClub members loved it. Full of bright colours, the film took us from deepest darkest Peru to the hustle and bustle of city life in London whilst following the adventure of Paddington and the Brown Family.

Lost and Found
This film is about a little boy who finds a lonely penguin on his doorstep. At first he is unsure what to do but he soon decides to help the penguin find his way home - even if it means rowing all the way to the South Pole.
Film Club members loved this film and thought that the penguin was super cute!
After watching, we had lots of fun making thaumatropes (an early form of moving pictures). Take a look at the pictures below!
