Monkey Do, Monkey See

The CLC was overrun with monkeys 2 weeks ago, as two year 4 classes from Sir Harold Jackson School arrived in order to animate the story Monkey Do, Monkey See. The classes read the story as part of a literacy project at school, then they made some beautiful sets and props to bring to the CLC. Once here they animated the story using Stop Motion Pro – not my favourite animation software, but the one we have for the PCs. Whilst one group was animating, the other group used Comic Life to create a comic strip version of the story, then they swapped at lunchtime. The groups will finish their animations at school, using Windows Movie Maker to add titles, credits, voiceovers and music.

The students worked really well together in their groups, and managed to create some fantastic animations, as you can see below. Their teacher said,

“The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were actively involved in both activities, which ran very smoothly.”
