Ancient Greek Pots Animation

Posted by: | February 24, 2016 | 20 Comments |

Here it is! Our incredible Year 6 animation. It was, of course, inspired by the original work that Karen Aqua and Ken Field did with some children in the U.S (click here to watch the original).

Miss Taylor and I are so proud of you all. We intentionally mixed the classes up to add an extra challenge but you all worked really well together, producing some fantastic animations in such a short period of time (two mornings!).

Anyway, grab some popcorn and enjoy!

Here is a link to the video that we are using to inspire our animations.

Hopefully, we will have some animations to share in a couple of weeks.

What is your animation going to be on?

What are your thoughts on the fate of the poacher, William Kemp?

Remember: he was poaching rabbits from the grounds of Lord Stamford and you caught him. You decided to tell Mr Adams, the head gamekeeper, leading to William Kemp losing his home, and being sent to prison for six months. Furthermore, with nobody to bring money home to his family, his children will have been sent to live in the workhouse.

Do you think that this was fair? Please leave a comment that answers fully and explains your opinion clearly.
