School is Cool Animations

For the last few weeks Room 39 have been creating animations to show why school is cool.  Check out the groups that have finished.  It was down to the wire, but these groups finished by the deadline and have now entered their animated clips into a competition.  A huge thanks to Mrs Mills who helped us with the technical bits at the end!

Heavy Rain Cancelled Assembly...

On Friday 21st June assembly was cancelled due to heavy rain.  What to do?????  Mrs Hulbert decided to teach the class how to sketch.  It was difficult not to hold the pencil in a writer's grip.  We sketched the sunflowers that sit up on our bookshelf.  Our drawings looked like Vincent Van Gough's 'Sunflowers'.  Some of us sketched using pencil while others used charcoal.  We were pleased with our results!


Over the past 2 weeks, we have been learning different techniques to make animations. In groups of three we choose different ways to display our animations, e.g Keynote, iCanAnimate, drawing on the whiteboard and claymation. As well as learning animation skills, we have also learnt teamwork and time management skills.
