03 Mar What’s happening in Year 6 – Week 2
On Wednesday morning, Year 6 were invited to take part in a very exciting workshop with author, Puneet Bhandal. Puneet is a former Bollywood film journalist and her work is often inspired by some of the incredible experiences that she has come across. Most recently, Pundit has written and published a book called ‘Starlet Rivals’, which is about a young girl named Bela, who has always dreamed of becoming a famous Bollywood actress.
The children had a fantastic time and really appreciated the short insight into the world of Bollywood films and stories. They were also taught the steps to a Bollywood song, which they absolutely loved!
“The dancing experience for us was very unique and we are grateful that Puneet took the time to teach us about such an amazing genre!” – Leone
“The session at Hackney Library was very informative and has inspired me to go and find out more about Bollywood-style stories.” – Derek
“It was very exciting to see the published book before its release date, and it was also nice to hear the background information that inspired Puneet to write the story.” – Tianah
