Andover Primary School’s P4/5 pupils have created short animations about superheroes based on their head teacher, janitor, school secretary and a local sweet shop owner.
The finished mini-movies were terrific. As a follow-up, there was a flash fiction workshop where each pupil wrote his/her own story to match the animation. The pupils have been presenting stories and cartoons to audiences, and the cartoons can be viewed at the school web site. The purpose was to get pupils thinking about creativity in all its forms. The pupils and Miss Harrison would like to say thank you very much to Jim and Heather from the Scottish Book Trust and Red Kite Animation.
