Yr.6 have been looking at Wallace and Gromit films in Literacy and ICT. They have used a variety of programmes to create animations. To finish this topic they worked using an animation app to create stop frame animations using plasticine like the Aardman films. First they used playmobil animals to make a film, this enabled … Continue reading
Eagles are learning about data in computing this term, which also helps our maths lessons. We are looking at the different graphs and charts and the information you can put on to them.

Owls went out this afternoon into the churchyard to look for creature homes. We went armed with Ipads to try and photograph any homes we could spot; anything that looked like it might be a home and any creatures. We are now going to use our photographs to create our own books on the Ipads.

As part of our ICT and Maths we have been learning about programming and directions. We used the beebots to help us understand that to programme a computer we need to tell it exactly what we want it to do. We saw how the beebots performed the exact instructions we gave them….even if it was … Continue reading

Year Six have been working hard today to create stop frame animations. We have been looking at Claymation by Aardman Animations and have identified the techniques and skills involved. We found that on average it takes them two days to create two seconds of film! We started by learning how to use the animation app … Continue reading
