Year 2 Stop Motion Animation

Yesterday, Year 2 learned about Stop Motion Animation and spent their computer science lesson using the Animate IT app to create short video clips. They then imported their work into iMovie and added sounds to create a short movie. The children really enjoyed experimenting with the apps and developed a good understanding of stop motion animation.

Year 2’s Stop Motion Animation Movies

This week, inspired by the book Rumble in the Jungle, Year 2 created short movies. Thursday afternoon, the children made a jungle panorama for a back drop, created their fabulous jungle animals out of play dough and used the iPads to create a stop motion animation. On Friday morning, the children had great fun using iMovie to import their media and add sounds: music, special effects and a voice over. We hope you enjoy watching the short videos below.
