Year 4 Curriculum
Y4 children have started their new ICT topic, which is animation. They have been learning two different animation programs; Movie Soup and Pivot.
Working through video tutorials, children have learnt how to position characters, add frames and create flip books.
Using Movie Soup children were given the task to create an underwater animation, thinking about the timing of objects and animating multiple creatures. Movie Soup records movement of objects, whereas Pivot animation is created by key frames.
The Pivot animation was based on making the stick man jump. Children had a character animated already and they had to create another stick that mirrored the other's movements.
