Post SATS messing about

Y6 from both Ormesby and Rift House today. Of course now that SATs are over schools just mess about for the rest of the time until the Summer don’t they? I can hear the knives being sharpened by fraught Y6 teachers from here; moderation, passing on info, end of year show, keeping the children on track etc etc….

So it was lovely that they wanted to come to a day of animation. Actually a day of thinking about what creativity is and why it is important for any future jobs they might like to have. That prompted a lively discussion and all the children agreed that creative jobs that required responsibility for your own work was preferable to being a part of a human machine.

To contextualise we then explored the creative possibilities of using LEGO and stop motion animation. Time was tight but you can see below that the focus on team roles, creating a clear plan and working to it were vital lessons from the day.
