Our Minibeast lifecycle animations!

To end our 'Wriggle & Crawl' topic, we got a message from Dr Fran. She needed some animations to show the lifecycles of different minibeasts. So we picked our favourite, researched the lifecycle and made backgounds and models. We used stop-motion animation via the Koma Koma app on the iPads. Then we added titles and sound via iMovie on Mr Griffiths's Macbook. Here are the finished films, we are very proud and will be emailing them to Dr Fran! Happy Easter everyone!

Making minibeast documentaries!

We have been very busy researching facts about our favourite minibeasts.  We then wrote a script so that we could make a mini documentary using the Tellagami app on the iPads.  Have a look at our first batch...

Welcome back!

Welcome to the new school year! Hope you all had a great holiday and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead! Our topic for the first half-term is called "Family album". We will be learning all about our families and how life has changed over the years. Do you know what it was like to be a child when your mum or dad was growing up? What about your Grandma or Grandpa? Why don't you ask them? Can they dig out some old photographs to show you? Do they have a family album? Maybe this short video will remind your family about what it was like growing up in "the olden days" :)
