Year 3 went on their first Essential Learning Experience of the year today when they visited South Shields Museum and Art Gallery to meet and look at the work of local animator Sheila Graber.
This trip was linked to their Dimensions topic – ‘That’s All Folks!’ which focuses primarily on history and computing through the context of film and animation.
During their time in the museum, the children visited the exhibition on Sheila Graber and learned about her life and some of her many accomplishments. They then took part in a workshop where they animated using an iPad and Stop Motion Studio.
Children will then apply this learning on their return to school where they will storyboard their own animations and create them using the same app.
Here is a video of the outcome of our workshop – what talented animators we have in Year 3!
