Stop Motion Animation Parent/ Carer and Child Session (1.5 hours)

Parent / Carer Child Stop Motion Animation Session 

As well as being great fun, stop motion animation is a great way to build younger children’s
confidence using computers. This is particularly true where their school relies on tablet computers,
as these don’t always give experience with using menus, and certainly do not give experience
operating a mouse, with the requirements for left and right clicks.

Aimed at parents with children of Reception age to Year 2, in this session, you and your child will
make a short film together. You will be able to download it at home and show to friends and family.
We will supply props, or you can bring your own. Some basic computing skills can also be covered, as
needed.Learning is fun with stop-motion animation
