In her email, teacher Sue Watterson said:


My year 6 class had a fantastic time working with Tom and Joff on the “Turn Lyme Green” animation film.
All pupils were involved; they worked enthusiastically and their contributions were valued.

Here is a selection of their comments: –
“favourite part was when we were filming the can rolling to Leah’s feet even though my legs ached”
“funniest part was when Tom called the card “thick paper” and Joff kept saying Oooh! Card”
“favourite part was when Tom was taking photos of us holding up the bags in slow motion”
“favourite part was when I had to lie on the ground and say “Our town” and hold a speech bubble”
“funniest part was drawing a rotting seagull”
“favourite part was animating the seagull”
“liked it when we stayed after school because we did some sound recording”
“great when we animated the town scene”
“funny when Joff called me “Dude” and kept calling Mrs. Watterson Sue”
“we drew a map of Lyme and everyone said it was really good”
“great when we were making all sorts of sea creatures and they looked really cool and colourful”
“best part was recording the sound of a dying seagull”
“great when we saw the result of our animating”
“I would rather have done this film than gone to a theme park as it was an unmissable experience”
“the saddest part was when they left”
Many thanks to everyone involved.
