Workshop – Animation

Animations allow your pupils to share their ideas in exciting, graphical ways. They can easily present to a range of audiences – whether it’s explaining how to stay safe online following an e-Safety workshop or developing a creative story, animations allow children to really express their creativity.

What does the workshop involve?

All training can be tailored to your school’s specific needs. A typical session includes:

  • What is animation and what makes a good animation?
  • Storyboarding and planning (free choice or linked to curriculum content)
  • Constructing the animation frames using the chosen technique (e.g. stop frame, characters on screen or own drawings)
  • Record the animation and add additional features, including sound, text and titles
  • Publish work and share with other members of the group
  • Parental showcase – parents / carers visit school and see what the children have produced during the day

Should you have a preference on the animation technology used, such as Zu3D or I can animate, we are able to adapt the session accordingly. The workshops can also build on prior knowledge, including content taught during ICT / Computing lessons.

Who is the workshop for?

The session outlined above is suitable for able Y3 children and upwards, with older children able to produce increasingly sophisticated animations.

How much does it cost?

The price outlined below includes an initial consultation with your school to ensure you’ll get the most from our training. Discounts are available for bookings of multiple training packages. 

Full day: £450
