PORTISHEAD school pupils have seen some of their work go live on a BBC website.

Students at Gordano School were invited to work with Aardman Animations, best known for creating the Wallace and Gromit series and a recent pirates film, to help redesign the Key Stage Three Geography Bitesize section on the BBC website.

Head of geography Christopher Pugh, who headed the pupils’ project, said: “It was a great opportunity for pupils to work with professionals and contribute to such a high profile website.

“Their input included reviewing the scripts and storyboards that Aardman Animations put together in November and then trialling the games in January.

“They were extremely excited to be told last week that their work has now gone live and is being used by thousands of students across the country.”
