Year 1 and 2 Work
The children in Years 1 and 2 have been learning some fantastic new skills in Computer Club.
Pivot Stickfigure Animator
The children use Pivot Stickfigure Animator to create individual frames of action which produce an animation when viewed in sequence.

BBC Dance Mat Typing
The children have also enjoyed using Dance Mat Typing, a website which uses animation and games to introduce touch typing to children and assists them with improving their touch typing skills.
The Year 2 class looked at lots of photos of fireworks using the Interactive Whiteboard. They discussed associated language and considered various ways that they could make their own firework paintings.
They were given a choice of items to use including pipe cleaners, scrapers, straws (to blow through) and cling film and were were amazed at how different each painting was!
