The latest show from Sixth Sense, Time For School, transmits in January: weekdays on CBeebies from Monday 6th January at 1630. The fly on the wall series, aimed at little ones and shot in two very different primary schools, follows two classes of Reception children throughout their first term at Big School.
Time For School is an exciting and ground-breaking fly-on-the-wall pre-school series following the ups and downs of real Reception children as they enter big school for the first time – and embark upon the greatest adventures of their lives. Our cameras will capture every aspect, big and small, of this unfamiliar but fun journey, in an entertaining and heart-warming observational documentary style.
From first day nerves and finding where to hang their coat, to school lunches, lessons, play and PE, we’ll be there every step of the way as our young pupils embark upon their first term’s journey of discovery. From daily goings on to special celebrations (Diwali, Bonfire Night, Christmas), CBeebies’ viewers will be immersed into the everyday lives of our chosen children.
The series are shot on location at two contrasting schools. Mere Green Combined School is in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham and is a suburban single-form entry school reflective of those found up and down the country. The other site is a federation of schools in picturesque Northumberland. The handful of students at the tiny Holy Island School learn together in one classroom, with one teacher. When the tide allows, they cross from their island home to learn alongside the class of children at Lowick School on the mainland.
Time For School will be shot from September to December 2013 throughout the Autumn term and will begin transmitting in January 2014. It is a Sixth Sense Media Limited Production fro CBeebies. Executive Producers are Nick Wilson and MD of Sixth Sense, Sallyann Keizer.
