Turns out they were making movie posters on their iPads - in Spanish of course. The intense concentration and total engagement was extraordinary.

Year 3 always enjoy getting into instructions, but now it's even more exciting. With Chinese New Year approaching they are following instructions to make Chinese lanterns. Today they each demonstrated how to do this whilst being recorded by their partner. Now each of the steps is on video they will add a voice over to it in iMovie.

I couldn't resist sharing one the test animations we did today. Considering it was a first attempt, and just a test, I think the results were quite good. Especially as we only had about 20mins to do it in. I love the concept behind this, and the sinister soundtrack adds to the effect.
As an introduction to our animation unit, Year 8 are experimenting with some simple stop-motion techniques. To do this we are using the iPads and a free app from Lego. We're having a lot of fun and I'm sure we'll soon have some amazing movies to share.
