Vaccies is an animation produced by Year 5 learners at Risca Primary School as part of a project to develop literacy, oracy, and digital competence skills. Pupils also explored the history of their local area, and the animation was developed from direct transcripts of the recollections of evacuees living in Newport during the Second World War.

Aside from pupils’ substantial development in oracy and digital competence, learner well-being and attitudes to learning were improved by this project.
