Cumberland School was pleased to welcome museum professionals from the Imperial War Museum and animators from Chocolate Films into school on Wednesday 2nd April, as they continued to work with 24 Year 8 pupils on the third day of the New Perspectives project. The day was spent with pupils developing their ideas for their own animation films through storyboarding and researching their chosen topics in greater detail to ensure historical accuracy is maintained in their animation films. The pupils worked really well on this third day of the project, and are now set to create the animation films on days four and five at the Imperial War Museum on Mon 7th April and Tues 8th April. The day was also interesting as Cumberland School welcomed back one of our ex-pupils called Daniel, who left in 2004 and is now working as an animator with Chocolate Films. He was impressed with the new building – as he attended Cumberland when we were at the old site. Look out for an interview with him in the next edition of the Cumberland Chronicle. Read More
