Students are also working on a cross-curricular project that will forge links with primary school children. "Key stage 1 children have to do an island project, and Mairi Hedderwick's beautifully illustrated Katie Morag stories are recommended. Some of our Year 10 students are using the stories to create stage sets and characters in their design and technology lessons.
We are going to film a story and take it to an infant department to show children an animated version of what they are already doing, with the hope that they could then take up animation, even at that level."
He also plans a spring festival that will showcase all of his students'
work. Some examples are on the web: www.cleo.net.uk
