Pupils learn how to become film makers.

COMPUTER software which gives children a chance to create their own comic strips is proving a hit with pupils at Frederick Bird Primary School.

Shefateur Rhaman and Alamin Hussain, both 11, brought in toys from home and took pictures of them with a digital camera.

They used Apple Mac laptops and a design software package to create their very own comic strip about a magical egg.

Shefateur said: "Our comic was fun and it was really easy. Information Communications Technology is one of my favourite lessons."

Next half term's project is to take their comic strip one step further to create a Wallace and Gromitstyle animation.

Year six teacher and member of the new technologies team Manesh Trivedi said: "When I say it's time to work on the Apple Macs there are smiles on their faces. They say, 'look what we've done' and it's unique to them."
