Greek myths brought to life at Bankwood

Year 5 pupils at Bankwood Community Primary School spent a day recreating the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur in plasticine, with hand drawn sets. Each group created an animation of a chapter of the story using I-Can-Animate software, then edited the film using iMovie – adding music and effects. All of the students put a great deal of effort and enthusiasm into the project, as you can see from the film above (this is a combination of scenes from both classes).

    First of all we have to say a massive thank you to Catherine Moore from CLC Sheffield South. She spent two whole days in school with us and then went away and created the most amazing DVD showcasing the children’s work.

    We were well prepared for the day with Catherine’s clear instructions about what she wanted the children to achieve. The equipment was set up quickly and efficiently and the children were taught how to use the equipment themselves.

    The equipment and software was brilliant and the chldren picked up how to use it really quickly. It was really interesting to watch how careful the children were and how much time, effort and patience they put into making their scene the best it could be. When it came to adding the voiceovers and music, the creativity and use of their literacy skills was fantastic.

    The final product when all the scenes were put together for both classes looks very professional and is very enjoyable to watch!

    They thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We are so proud of what they have produced and can’t wait to show everyone in school during our assembly!

    Well done Y5!

    Miss Dewick and Miss Law
