BBC LAB, Deshar School and Eggs with Legs
BBC LAB learning came along to Deshar school when Springwatch was on the BBC. They wanted to look at animating the school's book Eggs With Legs. It caused great excitement within the P4 - 7 class and had each child involved in some way.
The BBC LAB had picked up on Eggs with Legs earlier in the year. They had looked at animating sections of the book as a stop motion film with the pupils as well as filming a little piece of presentation about ospreys.
Some of the pupils were in front of the camera, and some were filming, doing sound, drawing animations, making the images move and all of the other many aspects of creating a short piece for camera. An outstanding effort from the pupils and teachers and BBC LAB. It has really inspired creativity within our house. Have a wee watch here.
Copies of Eggs With Legs can be bought here. Locally they can be found in Boat of Garten at the Post Office and Osprey Centre, The Gift Shop in Aviemore, Caberfeidh Horizons and Chapel House arts in Kingussie, The Bookmark in Grantown on Spey. Less locally on Amazon.
The book was written and illustrated by Deshar Primary School Pupils. It was based on an idea by Lou Wyllie as part of the celebrations of The Year of the Osprey. Celebrating 60 years of ospreys in the area. Published by myself.
