VIDEO: Pupils' documentaries will be professionally filmed as part of Tour De France Yorkshire Festival

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Pupils from Newby Primary school with the film crew Pupils from Newby Primary school with the film crew

Pupils at two schools in the Bradford district are celebrating their film making success.

Newby Primary School, in West Bowling, and Baildon C of E Primary School have been selected by the charity Sustrans to have their documentaries about the Tour de France filmed professionally.

Schools were invited to submit a two-minute film about the 2014 Tour de France in Yorkshire focusing on topics such as the history, route, the jerseys, bikes and the rules of the competition.

Sustrans has been working with schools in Yorkshire since 2004 to increase the numbers of children cycling to school and is working on a commission for the Yorkshire Festival 2014.

Their videos will now be put together professionally by Rattle Media and shown around the region during the Grand Depart.

Max Bilbow, from Rattle Media, who will be recreating the winning films, said: “At Rattle Media we know that an inspiring video begins with a great concept.

“There were so many fantastic entries and the winners really came up with some exceptional and unique ideas. Our task is challenging, to say the least, but with the help of those talented students, we will try to make their films even better.”

Yorkshire Festival 2014 is the first ever arts festival to precede the Grand Départ in its 111 year history. Nearly 50 events have been selected to be officially part of Yorkshire Festival 2014, which will also include hundreds of fringe events.

Newby Primary headteacher, Janice Stephenson, said: “I am extremely proud of the work that the staff and pupils have done, with support from our local community, in creating a successful film which helps to mark this special event for Yorkshire.”

Dianne Simpson, the school’s ICT Network Manager, said: “The school actively promotes a creative curriculum which increases experiences and develops confidence. Competitions such as this run by Sustrans are an opportunity to showcase these skills and I was pleased to be able to facilitate this.”

Everyone and his dog is jumping on the TdeF bandwagon and yet the important part ie the condition of the roads remains virtually the same a complete mess.

Surely the point of having it here was to take advantage of it? On TV recently, the Brownlee brothers said they had noticed a lot of re-surfacing on the actual route.

For a start the Browmlee brothers are not taking part they compete in a different sport., having ridden the stages a few patches have been made but the basic roads are unraceable due to potholes, missing catseyes, rough surfaces, drain and manhole covers that need resetting .Councils have spent as little as possible of the allocated money and pocket the rest and what work they have done is substandard. .

Firstly well done to the pupils at the schools.
Secondly a lot of learning can come from this and a good way of promoting Bradford West Yorkshire.

But oh no we get these stupid comments from people which don't help anyone. We are promoting our city and the surrounding area.
If I want to visit Yorkshire and looked at these comments it would make me want to go else where.
So can we have some positive comments about the story.
As as for the comments they are a minority of our city and you will receive a warm welcome if you visit or city.

So the Brownlee brothers (yes everyone knows what they do) are liars according to you! Judging by your previous record on here, I know who I believe.
You seem to know more about the councils than the councils do! Or is it that you just don't like being told anything Mr Secretary?
