Vicky Cleeves at Fair Furlong Primary runs a series of after-school clubs for children keen to do animation. Suzie Azare at Bishopsworth Junior School is doing a concentrated 3 day animation project with her whole class. Both teachers are using animation as part of a creative cross-curricular approach to delivering art, ICT, literacy & maths. They start by making their characters and backgrounds, then film their animations using a video camera, a lap top & special animation software.
The teachers in these examples benefit from a local Creative Partnerships scheme, which in this case enables them to work with filmmaker Kari Nygaard, who helps guide both Suzi and Vicky through the process.
