Year 6 Animation Project 2011

Children in Year 6 who have taken part in our Animation Project this year have now finished two fantastic films!

The quality of animation is absolutely amazing this year as I am sure you will agree. After designing and making their characters out of plasticene, children had a little help with creating and shaping their stories and some technical training on stop-motion animation techniques. They then worked almost entirely independently to produce their films. Mr Hanley assisted with recording, editing and sequencing their film's dialogue and sound effects.

Films were made using Zu3D animation software and a simple webcam. Sound effects were downloaded from http://www.freesound.org/ and music from http://audio.lgfl.net/.

Anyway, on to the films...

The first is all about Vlad the Vampire's first day at secondary school:

The next is about a mouse called Joe who is fed up of being bullied by Tiddles the cat:

If you want to try for yourself, get hold of a simple webcam and download a 30 day trial of Zu3D's fantastic animation software. Let us know how you get on!

Computer Programming Club

Here's the link to where you can download all of the programs you will need to start programming Python at home:

It's a big download (27MB) so you'll need to be patient. When it finishes downloading, run it, clicking 'I agree' and 'Next' wherever you have to.

If you don't have a Windows PC then you can download a version for Linux or Mac from http://www.helloworldbook.com  (Rory - you will need the Linux version for your EeePC).

You'll then be ready to have a go at writing your own programs.

Don't forget to bring in any programs you have written!
