Pupils at St Mary’s have Fun Xploring Computers

Pupils at St Mary’s C of E Primary School in Melton Mowbray are developing and honing their IT skills through innovative ‘clay animation’ classes being run at the school by ComputerXplorers South Midlands.

Children from age 7 to 11 at the school are learning how to create their own clay animation movies in ComputerXplorers after school clubs on Wednesdays and Fridays.  After 6 weeks the children will host their very own awards ceremony where their movies will be showcased ‘Oscars Style’. During the Premiere the winning movies will receive an Oscar and all the entrants will receive a DVD of their creations. To enable the children to share their work it will also be placed on a dedicated ComputerXplorers Website allowing the children to access their movies on the World Wide Web.

ComputerXplorers also run a class once a fortnight designed to challenge more able pupils, where they are learning how to create their own digital comic books. 

Sharon Deackes, Head Teacher, said: “When I have observed these classes, the children are so completely engrossed that they haven’t even noticed me there.  ComputerXplorers harness the children’s natural enthusiasm and hunger for technology, and channel it in such a productive way.  They are having so much fun that they hardly realise they are learning.”

St Mary’s recently installed a brand new IT network, bringing its facilities into the 21st century, as an investment in the progression of technology skills in the school. 

CX classes are aimed at 3-13 year olds, helping them to master technology skills, and increase their e-confidence and competence. The classes are held in schools, nurseries, after-school clubs and holiday camps, and are designed to enhance the learning skills of children of different ages and abilities. ComputerXplorers sessions can be cross-referenced to the national curriculum.

Younger children can build their academic readiness skills in core areas such as literacy, maths, science, music and art.  Older children can improve their computer and software skills, and learn some exciting new computer-based subjects like movie-making, Crime Scene Investigation, Robotics and how to design their own video games.

Diane Taylor, who runs ComputerXplorers South Midlands said: “We are about education with a small ‘e’ and Fun with a capital ‘F’! It’s so satisfying watching the children gain confidence with computers and to see them really enjoy learning.”
