Pupils in Reception class have been making their own stop motion animation for Computing this half term. They used the iPad app ‘I Can Animate’ to make this fantastic animation. They filmed it in front of the ‘Green Screen’ (a green piece of paper) so that they could then add in background images using the Green Screen DoInk app. Have a watch and please let them know what you think – Merry Christmas!
Tomorrow (5th November), is Bonfire Night. If you are going to a Bonfire or fireworks display tomorrow night, please have a look at these safety posters made by Nursery and Reception class first. Great tips for keeping yourself safe.
Year one have really been enjoying their topic on Superheroes. In Computing they used the iPad app Morfo to turn them into their favourite superhero character! First, they wrote a 30 second persuasive script to say why they should be awarded the title of superhero of the year and then they recorded themselves on the app.
Please can you listen to them all and leave a comment to say who you think the winner should be and why.
In Computing this week, pupils from Nursery and Reception have been using the iPad app Morfo to turn themselves into talking animals! Click on a habitat from the poster below to view an ‘animal’ talking about how they have been designed to survive within their natural environment. I wonder if you can guess who each one is?
Not really! They’ve just been getting ready for their trip by filming themselves in front of the Green Screen and talking about the animals they expect to see when they are there! Click on the animal words on the poster to see their videos (more to follow next week).
Children in Reception class know so much about space! They have really enjoyed this topic and were able to put this knowledge to good effect, as they programmed this space animation, using the Scratch jnr ipad app. Well done Reception, excellent work!
In Computing lessons, children in Nursery class were looking at healthy eating last term. They first demonstrated their knowledge by telling Mr Edmondson what kinds of foods and drinks are good for them and why. They were also able to tell him which foods and drinks are not healthy too and why. They then choose some healthy foods and programmed this informative animation on the Scatch jnr app. Please let them know what you think of it!
In Computing lessons recently, children in Reception class have been learning all about algorithms (step by step procedures or formulas for solving problems). To help them they each wrote a set of clear instructions for making a jam sandwich. They were then filmed in front of the Green Screen explaining and demonstrating how to do it. What do you think? Can you spot the next Jamie Oliver or Nigella?!
