Canterbury’s Years 5-6 Spark Program – 3D Movie Animation

3D Movie Animation

Do you like making movies? Designing characters and stories? Then this subject is for you!

Students are immersed in becoming storytellers by designing their own amateur characters, and using their imagination to allow their characters to come to life, in their own stop-motion movie.

Students collaboratively work together to investigate animation characters.

They design their characters, create their characters, and then transport their characters into their own movie.

Students have the opportunity to plan, design, build, problem-solve, reflect and improve their creation.

2023 Semester 2 Junior School Spark Learning Expo | 11:30am – 1:30pm, Wednesday 15 November | Canterbury Events Centre (CEC).

What is SPARK?

SPARK is an elective-based ‘hands-on’ curriculum for Years 5 and 6 students that is unique to Canterbury.

Each semester our students choose a special subject to study.

Then students from both year levels are combined into the same classroom and taught by relevant staff.

SPARK is about building curiosity, encouraging students to try something new, and providing an exceptional opportunity for them to embark on their own learning journey, as part of their ‘World Ready’ Canterbury education.

When does SPARK occur?

SPARK happens once per week, with students encouraged to continue their learning beyond the classroom.

How does SPARK link to the curriculum?

SPARK focuses on the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities, looking at critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding and intercultural understanding.

How can I see my child’s learning?

The Junior School hosts a learning exhibition at the end of each semester, where all students will have something to exhibit based on their SPARK sessions.
