SCHOOLchildren have been working with the BBC to create a ground-breaking animation which will mark the move of the children's entertainment department from London to Salford.

Thirty pupils from Darrick Wood Junior School, in Lovibonds Avenue, Orpington, travelled to the BBC studios in Maida Vale, west London, last Friday for the premiere of the animated film they made over the Easter holidays.

Groups of children devised story boards for two 30-second sections of music created by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, before building sets and shooting the short sequences.

Alison Tanner, ICT coordinator at the school, said: "We had a fantastic three days last week creating the animations and travelling up to BBC Maida Vale on Friday afternoon for the premiere.

"The BBC run several projects every term for schools, but they don't usually run three-day workshops with a proper animation as a result."

Schoolchildren in Salford were also involved in the project, and interpreted the Darrick Wood team's work with their own animations.
