Before we start doing animations on the school computers we practised by making flipbooks.
We cut out 10 pictures. Each picture is a little bit different than the last and when you flick through them fast it looks like they are moving!
Here's some more for you to try!
We talked about how we could tell stories with pictures then we watched a short film called "The Piano". It's about an old man remembering different parts of his life.
On our tables we chose the happiest and saddest parts of the film. Then we talked about how the person who made the film showed things that were happy and sad without using describing words or speech!
This term we are going to be doing Animation and Visual Literacy in I.T.
We watched a video that some students made as part of I.T. day in 2011.
We will keep you updated with how it is going! We will also put up some things for you to try at home yourself!
