This programme explores how 3D animation can be used to help deliver both ICT and Art units of the curriculum to Key Stage 2 pupils.
Higher Level teaching assistant Sarah Taylor is leading a 3D animation project with nine Year 5 and Year 6 children at Horton Primary School in Gloucestershire.
The children have recently completed an art module about movement, taking Degas' ballerinas as their subject. Now, they plan to create a 3D animation based on the book, "Degas and the Little Dancer".
Firstly, the children storyboard and create characters out of modelling clay. They then film the characters in tiny movements and edit their footage into a finished film, which is shown to the rest of the school.
This project brings together two QCA units: ICT unit 6a (Making a Multimedia Presentation) and Art unit 6a (People in Action).
Sarah and the children are observed by two experts: film maker Kari Nygaard and CPD and Creative Partnerships advisor, Diana Bogie.
