Pupils help to launch Learning with Hollywood

Primary schools up and down the country recently descended on their local Hollywood Bowl to celebrate the launch of Learning with Hollywood - an initiative designed to strike more fun into lessons.

Each bowl invited its local primary schools along to take part in a lesson using the newly launched Key Stage 2 curriculum linked education packs followed by a free game of bowling to put their new knowledge into practice.

Since announcing the initiative and inviting schools to participate, Hollywood Bowl were inundated with calls from schools wanting to come along on the day, and the 1500 pupils who took part enjoyed every minute.

Nicky Welsby from Hollywood Bowl said:  "The children seemed to love the Learning with Hollywood lesson as much as the bowling!  Whether they were jumping up and down on the spot with the muscle and heart rate worksheet or finding information out from around the bowl in the data analysis lesson, they were having a great time.

"We have had some fantastic feedback from both the teachers and the parents who came along to supervise the visit.  Many of the schools have asked if they can return to the bowl to try the initiative with other classes so the packs have certainly scored a hit."

The education packs are now available for teachers across the country to download for use in their lessons by visiting http://www.hollywoodbowl.co.uk/
