As a school we collected Harvest donations which Year 4 took to the Church of the Risen Christ. Reverend Linda shared with us the importance of Harvest and told us that it is a celebration of the food that is grown on the land. The food donated by Henley Green was added to the Church's own donations that were being collected and then shared with the Coventry food bank to support local families.
Year 4 have been creating short Stop Motion Animation films linked to the Traction Man story. In small groups the children created a storyboard, choosing their own superhero, characters, setting and plot for their mini adventure. Once the stories were finalised the children were introduced to the Zu3D software and were shown how to create their own stop motion animation. The children worked together to create the setting for their adventure and gathered props so they were ready to start filming.
As computer programmers the children had to sequence their events and media to ensure they were creating an exciting animation. They have taken it in turns to set up their props and the equipment ready for filming, click the camera to produce a frame, move the characters or objects and be the director – ensuring their group are following the storyboard.
