This week’s workshop was pretty much a repeat of the previous week’s. The children created or finished modelling their plasticine characters, and photographed frame by frame sequences of the narratives. Whilst keeping to the theme of the Olympics, a plethora of characters in a riot of colours abounded – Usain Bolt, an alien athlete, a magician athlete, and the original ancient Greek competitors against the back-drop of Mont Olympus were just some examples of the children’s creativity. There was a lot of excitement as the narratives were played out whilst the pupils who were comfortable with using a camera snapped away. After the frames were photographed, the children moved onto making display cases to exhibit their characters, painting and decorating their boxes as we inch ever closer to the unveiling of their exhibition.
Coming up next week: the pupils write history!
