LEAD CREATIVE SCHOOL - FOOTPRINTS Project
We at Fenton have been awarded the Lead Creative School grant from the Arts Council of Wales. This allows us to access funds for excited creative arts projects over the next two years.
This term we will be working on a digital project with a Welsh Digital Filmmaker on a project called, Footprints. We aim to provide immersive activities which address the curriculum and offer a creative approach to learning. Several activities will combine to produce a final short animated fillm.
The focus of the activity will begin with year 3 and 4 pupils, and the wider school will become involved as the project builds pace and more teachers and pupils will take part.
Learners are moving towards future digital learning. We will build bridges between the digital and physical world. We can integrate both into positive ways of learning. Animation is a bridge to these two ways of learning. We will use the local environment as inspiration. The children’s physical environment will be used with a view to creating flexible spaces that will inspire different ways of experiencing the world.
