Animation / Film Club

Here you will find information about the club and some examples of work produced by children. Every Tuesday, 3:15pm – 4:00pm future animators and budding film makers from year 3 – year 6 gather to design, create and film short animations and movies.

What does the Club Offer?

At our Animation / Film club we use stop motion apps, flip paper animation as well as Play-Doh and caricatures to create the short pieces of animation.

Children use their time to explore and investigate the Apps, the manipulatives and the iPad before planning and creating ideas.

We film short trailers and videos linked to children’s topic and hobbies to develop their creative skills and confidence.

Children are advised to seek permission from their parents before downloading any free apps on to their personal devices. This is to promote e-safety. These apps will also allow children to continue developing their skills at home!
