Li Chi Slays the Serpent

While Year 5 and 6 pupils were at Thomas Mills High School today, Mr Mansell worked with a group of Year 4 pupils to produce this short film about the Chinese folk-tale, Li Chi Slays the Serpent.

The children began by recording themselves reading the story. They then produced some artwork depicting different scenes in the story.

In the afternoon, we used plasticine to make models of the characters in the story and animated them using stop-frame animation techniques.

The children then put everything together using Windows Movie Maker to produce this short film.
