On 16th December 2015, just in time for the release of Star Wars, the post-16s at Milestone Academy joined forces with the Wilmington Academy sixth form for a Star Wars-themed literacy and inclusion day.
With the skilful guidance of two professional filmmakers, the students worked cooperatively to recreate the film “Return of the Jedi” in four short, 2D animated scenes. The students were entirely responsible for the production.
Our students’ goal was to develop their social communication skills and, by working alongside peers of a similar age and interest, we more than exceeded that target.
