Action and Animation
Our Key Stage 2 group at Pelham Primary school have continued the theme of movement and the figure. We started the term with some life drawing, which developed into small pipe cleaner sculptures. See earlier BLOG post – The Moving body
They moved on to create sculpted environments for their figures and were completely absorbed in their construction work.
We used simple materials – paper, card, scissors, glue sticks and masking tape.
It was great to see how the children found a range of ways to use their imagination, working in 3D. This involved quite a bit of problem solving.
Other simple activities were used as warm ups
Children started off with a scribble and passed on the sheet to try and create a figure from the lines made.
After scribbling they drew a range of figures, creating a simple moving storyboard.
Storyboards developed and finally were made into simple flick book animations, which was a challenging activity.
