Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

We Are Animators!

In Computing this afternoon we became animators and made a mini film. We used the APP Puppet Pals a basic version on the Apple APP store is free!

This was our first time using the iPads in our learning so we had to learn to swipe and pinch to use them. By the end of the lesson we had all made a test animation, it was tricky to make the characters move and for us to speak at the same time.
If up you have an iPad at home try the APP, Mr Connolly would love to see the films.

We even saw the award winning film Year 1 made two years ago!
