AN ANIMATOR who has worked on more than 100 films has been helping children draw on their talents and knowledge.

Robin Webb has been helping pupils at Coquet Park First School in Whitley Bay as part of the Shimmer 2012 project.

The main focus has been a film about the geological history of Whitley Bay – from the formation of the planets and stars, through the emergence of life, to the battle between the land and the sea.

Working with Age UK and VODA, the pupils have imagined how landscape and history has formed Whitley Bay.
