5th Class Stop Motion and Storytelling
Boys in Mr Stafford’s 5th Class created fantastic stop motion videos. I have included snapshots to showcase the time and skills that the boys have put in to create stop motions of the New Zealand Rugby team, the moon landing and The Joker.

The boys worked on different scenes to give Lego figures the impression of movement to create really innovative stories.

While stop motion videos are great for group project work and collaboration skills, the boys worked independently during remote teaching and learning. This then involved skills such as creating the model pieces, designing the background, recording voiceovers, shooting the scenes (with patience) and moving the characters through creative thinking, problem solving and attention to detail.

Future film directors in the making!
