My Last Car

Through the school links with Ryedale Folk Museum the school had the opportunity to work with some artists and Ryedale folk museum on an exciting project in July 2012. The project was called ‘My Last Car’. It involved working on an animated film based on a journey from Gillamoor to Ryedale Folk Museum. The artists, Tom Lloyd and Hannah Fox, had worked on a similar project with a school in Ingleton.

The film was based on stories and ideas from the children based on their fantasy and wild imagination of what they might find on their journey. It fitted with their literacy work on Myths and legends. The ‘My Last’ car project was based around the notion of us abandoning cars and using our feet, and that was the starting point.

The ideas and characters the children came up with were weaved into the following animation  film. All of the children in the project can be heard through the narration of the story.

The project involved;

  • A walk from Gillamoor to Ryedale Folk museum,
  • The children then wrote their stories before Tom and Hannah returned to work with the children on the film
  • Sharing of the animated film with the whole school and put on display ay Ryedale Folk Museum during August 2012.

Thirteen pupils took part in the project. To be chosen they had to write/type a short letter, no more than 200 words, saying why they should be chosen for this project. This was open to pupils from the juniors, years 3 – 6.

All pupils taking part said they really enjoyed the project.

Over the years Gillamoor school have taken part in various projects with Ryedale Folk Museum. In the Spring of 2012 the Infants visited to plant some trees to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.
