  9. All the children were so enthusiastic about this film. The whole experience was extremely exciting, memorable and rewarding. They set themselves very high standards and strived to achieve them with excellent results. It’s hard to believe they were only seven years old! I really am very honoured and lucky to have been their teacher. They all worked relentlessly to make this film the best production ever. I never had to say what Harry said to Scruff - ‘Sit doon and behave yersel!’ They were just amazing. So to all the children who created this film, here is a message: Keep working hard to reach your goals, always do your best and follow your dreams. You are an inspiration to others so be very proud of your achievements.
    Well done!

    Maybe this film was the inspiration behind Princess Beatrice's pretzel hat...
