Science, History and Animation at Oxley Park Primary School by the Owls in Year 5, 2010


Quirky Pictures led a workshop for  Creative Junction at the Oxley Park Primary School in Milton Keynes. Our young and enthusiastic animators  in March and April 2010 created short animations inspired by space travel and the first landing on the moon. The ideas thy created were inspired by their science lessons. (Click onto the title to watch the movie.)

Oxley Park Primary School opened in September 2005 to serve the catchment area of Oxley Park and North Kingsmead. South Kingsmead is in the defined area for Tattenhoe Park Primary School. The school is built to the latest DCFS standards, maximizing the potential as a learning environment for pupils, staff and the community. The building is designed over two levels with Foundation and Key Stage 1 on the ground floor and Key Stage 2 on the top. We are fortunate to have purpose built areas such as Technology and Art areas, a Music courtyard as well as all weather football, tennis and netball courts. Foundation stage have separate purpose-built facilities including an attractive fenced off playground area. s the Head often says “We have to be seen, to be believed!” – Ofsted did in January 2007 and judged us “outstanding”.

Creative Junction aims to be a point at which ideas come together, explosions occur and new turns are taken. We build partnerships with and for young people, to develop creativity and to connect powerful, innovative learning across sectors. We are a community interest company working in the South East, using the knowledge and expertise gained from delivering Creative Partnerships since 2002, and building on the solid foundations of many years’ leadership experience in education and creative practice.

Creative Partnerships is the Government’s flagship creative learning programme, designed to develop the skills of young people across England, raising their aspirations and achievements, and opening up more opportunities for their futures. This world-leading programme is transforming teaching and learning across the curriculum.’
