The six week course in Movie Making started on 4 November and the children, all aged between 7 and 11, are loving it. They are learning how to use a range of different tools and techniques to make their movies, such as toys, animation, clay models, special effects and soundtracks. At the end of the course they will present their own mini film festival and all the movies will be uploaded onto the web so that parents and pupils can view their creations.
Christopher Welsh, Head of the School said: “The children are really enjoying the classes as they are so fun and imaginative. They are so thoroughly absorbed by what they are doing that they don’t realise how much they are learning! The whole school is excited about our first film festival.”
ComputerXplorers South West Wales is owned by Paul Charles.
He said: “ICT has a very important role to play in educating and preparing children for the future. These classes help children develop their ICT skills as well as giving them the opportunity to explore the arts. They also learn how to plan their work and how to work together as a team.”
ComputerXplorers classes are run in schools, in after-school clubs and during school time, as well in nurseries and holiday clubs throughout Swansea, Cardiff, Port Talbot, Bridgend and surrounding areas. There are classes suitable for all ages, from as young as 3 and up to 13 yrs old, and a wide range of exciting subjects on offer including Crime Scene Investigation, clay animation, rocketeering and robotics.
