Pupils in the Middle and Senior Schools had a fantastic opportunity in their online art lessons to learn how to create stopmotion and hand-drawn animations recently.
Basing their ideas on the topic of ‘What makes you happy?’, the topic went hand in hand with Crosfields #3GoodThings social media campaign; a theory that gratitude is important for how good we feel psychologically and socially. Over the lockdown form tutors have been encouraging children to share three positive things about their day to boost mental wellbeing and children in Years 5 to 8 were then asked to explore these through the exciting medium of animation.
Pupils enjoyed watching their collective animations and they can be viewed below.
