Why did you bring the students to watch Arrietty today?
It is just really good for them to have new experiences and I think it really helps with their writing and imagination. Also, they really like having day trips out.

And what do you think the educational benefits of the trip are?
I think it would be great to do some character work on Sho and Arrietty because there are a lot of good things in the film about their friendship. I could also use it for drama and storytelling.

What did you think of the film?
I liked it. I liked it when the dad hurt his leg and other man brought him home.

Who was your favourite character?
Arrietty. Because she was the main character.
I liked her because she borrowed things and was really brave.

Why did you bring the students to watch Arrietty today?
I think it was a really good experience for them to help extend their concentration and their listening skills. I think they really enjoyed it, especially the funny bits. It is also good for them to see some world cinema and to have the chance to visit a Central London cinema.

And what do you think the educational benefits of the trip are?
We will be doing reviews of the film for the Young Film Critic competition. It was also good for them to see someone who was involved in the film. It helps them understand that people involved in making films are real and also tells them a little bit about how films are made.

Students, Keyworth Primary School, Southwark

What did you think of the film?
Yes, I thought it was creative and funny. I liked the faces that the old lady made.
My favourite part was when the crow tries to come in the window and was flapping its wings until the old lady scared them away.

Why did you bring the students to watch Arrietty today?
It was a great experience for the kids to have the place to themselves and getting to see it first makes them feel privileged and special. They all enjoyed the film. I think some of them felt a little sad at the end - they didn't expect it end with them parting but I think that was good because it shows them another side of life. It helps to move them forward, especially the older children who are getting ready to leave school as they will be separated from some of their friends.

And what did you think about having Tom Holland at the screening?
That was brilliant. It was good for them to see other aspects of the film - it helps bring the film to life. And as it is someone near their age it will broaden their horizons.

Nursery Students, Christ Church Primary, Camden

What did you think of the film?
It was good. I like the grown up boy. He was my favourite character. I liked the cat.

Most of our children do not get to go the cinema and if they do its usually mainstream so I wanted them to see something a little more traditional and from a different country. I also really wanted to introduce them to the story of "the Borrowers" because I am really fond of the book.
