FAB Club

5

Year 5 and 6 children who are interested in ICT attend an after school club called ‘FAB club’ which stands for film making, animation and blogging. Recently children have been using the school’s ipads and istopmotion programme to create animations with lego, plasticine and backdrops. Stop animation is painstaking work, moving characters, props and scenery in very small movements to build up a story. Students then added music, voice and titles.

They also spend a few weeks working on a coding programme called Scratch where they implement code to build online games. This fits into their ICT curriculum too. https://scratch.mit.edu/

The second part of each term, pupils use the iMovie programme to film each other talking to camera. Term one’s theme focussed on issues around the Eco-schools programme such as saving energy, water and recycling waste. The second term’s theme was creating a virtual school tour. Children are required to edit their films and add music, effects and transitions.

Check out their first animation attempts!

This term we are learning how to use code to create online games using Scratch website: https://scratch.mit.edu

Every child has their own login and account and have been enjoying exploring the site and developing their own games. They have been experimenting with sprites, backgrounds, movement, sound, commands, events and all manner of codes.

    These are great. I love the adventures of Crabby By Mya and Ella.

    They are all amazing but the thing is that Vanessa’s has been put on twice but it is worth it it is great.

    no it only took a few weeks to make a few minute videos. You are sort of but not right. It did take a bit of time but not much.

    Thank you Miss Letts for running FAB club. I really enjoyed making the movies. Eventhough you get stressed out with the computers and ipads, your still the best ICT teacher ever.

    This is a friend of Miss Letts’ in New York, and I just wanted to say that these were all really fun to watch. The kid in my high school who fiddled around with video (back when it was a new technology) went on to become a successful film director, and even won an Academy Award. So keep it up, if you enjoy it–you never know where your interests may lead.
