Pupils from a Great Yarmouth school were glued to the big screen this week when a film they made had its premiere.

The Year 3 youngsters from Southtown Primary School worked with a local animator to produce ‘James Paget’, a film telling the eminent surgeon’s story.

The pupils lent their voices to the animation and carefully drew each of the scenes, and got to see their handiwork on the big screen at St George’s Theatre before being handed mini ‘Oscar’ awards for their efforts.
