After last week’s visit by Monksmead Year One, this morning we were very pleased to welcome Year Two from Monksmead School. Dave, Helen and Matt led the children in three activities. Dave delighted our young visitors by working with them to create animated ‘flip’ books, allowing the children to create their own mini cartoon. After this, Dave showed them 8mm film, and explained the process by which it is edited.
Helen showed the children costumes from The Railway Children film and allowed them to participate in a clip from the film, using our very own CGI. Finally, Matt explained how old-fashioned toys entertained ‘pre-tablet’ generations of children! Our visitors then left, after thanking us for the lovely morning they had enjoyed. Thank you, Monksmead School, for bringing your class. Special thanks to Mrs Moynihan, and her colleagues for arranging this. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
