YR 3 Pixel Animation
Children in year 3 have started their new topic – animation. We watched a video exploring animation and the different types of animation used.
Today we created our own animation in the form of pixel art. Children designed their image on squared paper then converted it into a digital moving image with the use of frames and an animation program.
Each frame has a coloured pixel/square which pupils kept adding to, by creating frames. When the sequence of frames is played, it gives the illusion of animation.
Children then filmed their animations using an Ipad.
