Bringing stories to life
What a brilliant day so far today. Year 2 children from Newcomen and Riverdale Primaries in Redcar have been joined by Y1 children from Ormesby Primary to take on our latest creative challenge day. As usual we focus on teamwork and confidence building and today we have used the lens of animation.
The children began the day animating their names and took to the process like ducks to water. Stop Motion is a free stop motion app that takes away any complication to the technical side of animation and allows users to concentrate on the quality of the work. On previous days we have used it as a short task when using our Build to Express LEGO sets but today we wanted to develop a better quality product.
Using a three part story planner, various backgrounds, vegetables and some oogly eyes, the children are now creating simple three part narratives that they will bring together in iMovie after lunch to add voice overs and titles. You can see from the pictures below what these children are capable of when given a creative stimulus and the chance to work collaboratively.
