Can you make a ‘cracking’ short film to wish Aardman a Happy Birthday? It’s time to ‘get creative’ and be as inventive as you can, as you are about to become the writer, the producer and also the director of your VERY own film (with a little help from Morph if you need it)!

Intellectual Property Education Framework (Primary - Wales)

(0)
The Intellectual Property (IP) Education Framework (developing creativity and innovation in tomorrow’s workforce) has been developed to equip the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs and creatives with the knowledge to identify, protect, use and respect IP. The framework sets out that knowledge through age-appropriate competency statements from primary to higher education. Learning about intellectual property will help prepare young people for employment, responsible digital citizenship. Developed in consultation with teachers from across the four UK nations, with industry and professional bodies. The IP Education Framework is a cross cutting resource that supports each of the UK curricula. It has been designed so that teachers can easily access the parts of the framework most relevant to their teaching. The framework signposts free education resources from the UK IPO and partners that support teachers and educators to introduce IP concepts into everyday lessons, building learners’ understanding and practical application of ownership and ideas, creativity and innovation.

Wallace Gromit’s Cracking Ideas aims to inspire your children to be creative and inventive, whether you’re in a classroom, a club or at home! Designed with the help of Aardman, whose invention-loving duo Wallace & Gromit feature in the learning materials, Cracking Ideas provides curriculum-led activities that get children engaged with design and the importance of protecting intellectual property. Our age-appropriate activities inspire children aged 4-7 and 8-11 to come up with their own inventions which they can enter into our nationwide competition - there’s a very special prize up for grabs! Flexible resources support different ages, settings, abilities and interests. Use them in your classroom or with an after-school club, youth centre, Scout or Guide group. In these activities children think about how we get from place to place, undertake some creative product design, explore some important stages in the design process, and come up with a sustainable and fun way to help Wallace and Gromit get from place to place during their tour of the UK. As they learn and invent, children are introduced to Intellectual Property (IP) and the importance of protecting original ideas. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with IP! We explain IP in simple, age-appropriate ways in the resources, and there’s more information for adults at the end of this guide. Wallace & Gromit’s UK tour of Innovation This year we are introducing a special challenge with the school or group that sends in the most entries winning a unique prize that they can all enjoy. Wallace & Gromit will be on their very own tour of innovation across the UK. The duo will travel a mile on their virtual tour for every competition entry received from a school/group. On the way they will stop at cities, towns and districts discovering innovations of the past and future. The whole journey will be documented on our social media channels and through our newsletter. It might even be that their exploits will inspire your very own Cracking Ideas. Sign up to the newsletter to follow the tour
