Life in all its fullness

27/04/2020

Hello, I hope that you are all well and keeping yourselves busy. It was wonderful to speak to you all last week. Thank you for taking the time to talk to me and tell me all about what you have been doing. I would also like to thank parents for lovely telephone conversations, you really were so upbeat and positive and I also enjoyed speaking to you and hearing your feedback about the learning.

 

It sounds as though you have all been finding fun things to do in your spare time such as bike rides, building a treehouse, making a den in the garden, setting up a paddling pool (pretending to be on the beach!) and nature walks.

 

I felt very inspired after speaking to you all, thank you and I look forward to catching up again this week. In the meantime, I have attached your learning for this week. I am only a phone call away if you need any support with this or have any questions, always happy to help.

Art

 

Using just two basic materials, a pack of memo notes and a pen, this is a straightforward demonstration of how to create an apparently moving image through a very basic but easily accessible animation technique. A repeated image with slight alterations to each frame drawn on the following memo notes creates a moving image, scene or character which could be adapted to any theme, story or topic. Combined with static objects such as model cars, a drawn animated character can be made to move across the scene with some realism. A basic technology-free introduction to animation and the moving image.
