Animation is a fun way for children to express their ideas through a medium that blends art, storytelling, drawing, illustration, design, graphics, sculpture, acting, staging, art directing and filmmaking into one amazing form capable of transforming its creators into magicians. Animation is unbounded by time or reality. It brings to life visions and ideas that are the artist’s creation, limited only by their imagination.
GoAnimate is a fun software used in-browser that allows you to make simple animations easily and quickly. The children in year 4 were given the task of creating an animation of their choice. Each pair of children created their own videos and when they had finished there was a viewing of all of the animations produced. The children felt very excited as their work was published online and they could share it with the world. Have a look at some of the videos they created below.
