We love a challenge at Inspire2Learn and when an additional 30 children arrived this morning to an event booked for 60 we rose to it as a team! Once settled into the task though all the children from Acklam Whin, Newcomen and Chaloner Primaries have taken to their tasks magnificently. Working through the basics of the brilliant free app StopMotion, they quickly got to grips with frame rate, how much to move characters and how to create space for labels and speech. Usually we challenge the children to create a short story on these events but we always like to freshen things up and today’s challenge was to take something that they had been learning about in science and animate it. As usual, team work skills such as effective listening, effective planning and time management were focussed on to ensure that the children achieved what they had been tasked to do. And what creative ideas they came up with!
And here are some of the animations, some more finished than others!!! More to follow tomorrow.
