Castleview Primary School in Edinburgh recently launched their new Rights Respecting School animation, which we are pleased to showcase here.
The film brings all of the rights of the UNCRC to life. It’s a list of rights that all children, everywhere in the world have. The rights are things that all children and young people need to make sure that they are healthy, happy and safe.
The animation was made by 11 children, Teacher Mrs Iona Brockway, and an animation expert, Mark Carr.
The pupils thought how they could bring each article to life by using props and backgrounds, making it catchy and fun. Pupils learned all of the rights and used thoughtful and innovate ways to present these rights.
They learned how to use a green screen, how to film, and how to use graphics to create animations.
On completing the project, Mrs Iona Brockway said: "The pupils felt a great sense of achievement seeing how all the different aspects of animation pull together to make the final film. This was especially successful as the pupils involved gave up their own time, to make this animation in an after school club. As a school we are dedicated to raising aspirations for pupils and by understanding Rights and associated Responsibilities, pupils are realising their goals and ambitions for life, learning and work."
