Watch: Cork school kids create '1916 The Movie'... in Lego Newsdesk Newsdesk

IT'S the 1916 Rising... but not as we know it.

Pupils from 3rd class in Sunday's Well Boys School in Cork have made a superb stop-frame animation of the events surrounding the historic date using Lego.

"I love Lego and so do most of the 21 boys in my 3rd class," teacher Michael O'Connor told

"I wanted to do something for 1916 and thought doing it in Lego would be great.

" I've already made some smaller Lego movies with previous classes but this was the biggest one yet.

"Without having to teach the boys anything about the Easter Rising, just the making the movie opens up their curiosity.

"It's special because it's something they have created that's there forever. It took a month to make this and it is less than four minutes."
