We have really been enjoying our topic about photography this term, especially as we have started using computer software to produce our own ‘Squash and Stretch’ animation. We planned our video by drawing a storyboard with at least six different frames to show a ball bouncing. This week we used iMotion on the iPads to take the photos. It was really hard because sometimes the iPad didn’t stay still and sometimes the Play-doh fell off the stand. However, it was really fun and most of us were happy with our final video.
In English we have been writing diaries. As our class book is The Iron Man, we have been using him to gather ideas. In Reading Skills we have been looking at classic texts. We have read extracts of Wind in the Willows and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We used clues in the text to work out what the characters were feeling and thinking.
We were lucky to be able to use the sunny weather this week in science because we have been learning about what makes a good shadow. We went outside and found different shadows before making our own using our hands.
