Stop Motion Animation

Last term KS1 & KS2 worked on an animation project in Art and Design. We were inspired by the BBC ‘Ten Pieces’ project. The project aimed to introduce children to classical music.

We began listening to the music and imagined a story to go with it. We each made a collage. We then voted which ideas we would use in the animation. Each table created a collage to go with each scene.

We filmed each scene using the Ipad and the ‘Stop Motion’ App.

Finally music was added.


We hope you enjoy the animations!
