Medium (5-11 activities)

This resource is based on the new animation Kensuke’s Kingdom, adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s novel, and aims to immerse learners in the world of the film and 2D animation.

We consulted with teachers on Into Film’s Welsh Ambassadors panel to shortlist the potential activities to be included in the resource and ensure their suitability for the Curriculum for Wales.

Each curricular activity is structured as a lesson plan that draws on the trailer, stills, content from the film and exclusive interviews with the crew as stimulus and alternative digital activity to meet the cross-curricular needs of the digital competence framework. 

The animation activities develop young people’s animation skills from simple flick books to using digital software apps, encouraging them to develop their own animations inspired by Kensuke’s Kingdom. There is a selection of youth-made 2D animations and exclusive interviews with the crew who made the film and who offer their top tips for animation careers as further inspiration for learners.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
