Icarus and Daedalus animations

Over the last 2 weeks, year 4 have been working on an animation project linked to our topics- the Ancient Greeks.

First, we had to plan our story (Icarus and Daedalus) , and decide what backdrop and models we would have to design, and then we made them. We used crafting techniques to make the wings using feathers, and sketching techniques for the characters’ bodies.

The following week, we used the iPads and an app called iMotion to create a stop motion animation using our models. It was really tricky to keep the iPad in the same frame, and make tiny movements of the models to make the animation look smoother. Check out some examples of our animations

Watch this space for year 3s examples in a few weeks time.
