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.
Year 4 have been working with artist Sian Hodson creating sculptures from recycled materials. Children studied Spanish artist Miro and based their sculptures around this.
On Tuesday 20th June we held an art exhibition in the Qube to show case and celebrate the children's work.
