Creating a Comic Strip Story @RRIS

This week the digital leaders have been using the Zimmer Twins website to make their own animated comic strip stories.  In fact one of the Reception classes saw what we had done and had a go making one together which is amazing!

“I started off picking what I wanted the character to do and then I got a speech bubble and started to write!  You can choose between 3 different characters.  It is easy to make a story quickly.  I am going to make one at home.”

“I made a story about 13 the cat, he teleports and goes in a trolley!  It’s really random!”

“My story is about the cat it teleports in the park.  It is really easy to do.  I am looking forward to teaching my class how to do it.”

“The cat was sleeping and wakes up and the girl is there and he speaks to her.  It is easy to make a story.  I really liked it.”

“The characters go to a rock competition and they teleport to a forest and outer space.  It is easy to do.”

“The boy goes on stage and plays his guitar and the girl goes on too and plays her guitar and they sing too.”

Creating Animations @RRIS

Who doesn’t like making their own animation?  This week we have been learning to make our own animations with the help of the website ABCya – it is really easy to create a background and add your own drawings or ready prepared clipart.  You can move the things around the screen making them bigger and smaller.  We got the hang of it in no time and are looking forward to showing our classes and making up our own stories to share with the rest of the school.

Presentations using Textease Presenter @RRIS

We have seen the teachers use presentations and wanted to know how to make some for ourselves.  Textease Presenter is an easy children’s version of MS Powerpoint and it didn’t take us long to make a presentation about our favourite things.  We are looking forward to teaching our classes how to do them.

Making ‘Guess Who’ with Textease Branch @RRIS

This week we learnt how to use Textease Branch to make a ‘Guess Who’ style game.  You selected all your items (which all had something in common – like animals, or sports etc) then you input questions that had a yes or no answer and split the items into their correct group.  When you had finished all the questions you could play the game. We really enjoyed making the games and testing everyone’s out to see if they worked correctly. We also had two guest children with us as 2 digital leaders were away 🙂

Testing our E-safety Games @RRIS

This week all our e-safety board games are finished and so we have been testing them ready to play with the Year 1 children during our internet safety week. We thought about what we liked about them and then thought about ways in which the games could be improved. We can’t wait to play them with all the classes.Testing games @RRIS Testing games @RRIS Testing games @RRISTesting games @RRIS

Making E-safety Board Games @RRIS

This half term the Digital Leaders and year 2 are making board games for the year 1 children to play based around the theme of e-safety.  Firstly we designed the game on paper and are now transferring that to Textease – using snap to grid to make the game look super smart.  We will be adding a bit to the game board each week ready to play it in our Internet Safety week.

Learning to Take Photos @RRIS

This week we have been thinking about what makes a good photograph and we found out that taking a good one is a lot harder than just pointing the ipad and clicking the buttton!  We tried to make sure that our photos were in focus, that the subject matter was central (and that we didn’t cut off heads or feet), that we didn’t focus on the wrong thing – like the carpet, wall or ceiling!  We shared our photos with each other at the end of the session and thought about what went well and what didn’t!  We will use everything we have learnt to take some great photos for our iMovies which we will be making after Christmas.Taking Photos @RRIS Taking Photos @RRIS Taking Photos @RRIS
