BBC BITESIZE - Age 5-7 with Parents/Grandparents

We are an independent production company making a series of early literacy films for BBC Bitesize. This will be our second series so you may remember us from the first time around. The films are aimed at Early Years and P1 students, and are designed to encourage children to listen to the musicality of language as a book is read, and to model reading behaviour. Specifically, we use a graphic soundwave device with simple illustration to focus attention on the sound of the voice, instead of following the narrative pictorially. They are especially targeted at children who are not ordinarily read to at home.

We have produced a series of these films already, which you can view here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvyc7nb 

We are now looking for children who are around 5-7 years old and their parents / grandparents / carers to film with for our next few films. This time, instead of using a separately recorded voiceover, we would like to use the voice of the parent / carer doing the reading.

I wondered whether any of your students might be keen? If so, would you be willing to reach out to some of their parents / guardians to share this information? Initially, we would be looking for a quick voice recording of the adult reading a children's book, (it can just be recorded on a phone - doesn't have to be professional) and a photo of them and their child. We'll then use these to make final casting decisions along with the BBC team.

For your peace of mind, safeguarding is our primary concern whenever we work with children. We always ensure that the child's guardian is present and has given explicit permission. We have plenty of experience filming with children and everyone directly engaging with the children will have undertaken BBC training to work with children. Our Producer / Director is also DBS checked.

We always make it fun, and it's also a great opportunity for children who are interested in performance or media - or who may just enjoy the experience!
