Y4 Animation Unit Overview : 1st Draft

In this unit the children will look at how computers are used in animation. They will compare the early Disney classics with the most recent Pixar animations. They will also look at stop-motion animation including the work of Aardman Animations and legendary animator, Ray Harryhausen. Finally they will watch a classic animation from Chuck Jones and use this as inspiration for their own digital animation. In their animation they will consider how simple shapes can be given character and emotion through the use of colour and movement. They will then publish their animations online via their blog and will respond to any feedback they receive.

  1. Hi Chris, great idea, especially how much time you are spending looking at the real world development of animation. What software / app do you feel is most appropriate for Y4?
