Event - ICT in Action Week

November 2011

Pupils in Year 4 and Year 5 have been working on an ICT project together with some students from Newman University College.

We decided to make a stop animation film based on the Maurice Sendak story 'Where the Wild Things Are'. To begin with, we made a mind map to decide which parts of the story we would use; then we altered some images using Google Picasa. After that, we made the sets for our film and some characters using play dough and plasticine. We made the animation film by using lots of images of the characters in our scenes and editing it using Windows Live Movie Maker.

The students showed our finished films to Year 4 parents in a special assembly.

All of the children enjoyed the week's activities and learnt a lot about using different software.
