Autumn Days

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled
And the silk inside a chestnut shell.
Jetplanes meeting in the air to be refuelled.
All these thing I love so well

So I mustn’t forget
No, I mustn’t forget.
To say a great big
Thank You
I mustn’t forget

Clouds that look like familiar faces
And the winters moon with frosted rings.
Smell of bacon as I fasten up my laces
And the song the milkman sings

Whipped-up spray that is rainbow-scattered
And a swallow curving in the sky
Shoes so comfy though they’re worn out and they’re battered
And the taste of apple pie.

Scent of gardens when the rain’s been falling
And a minnow darting down a stream
Picked-up engine that’s been stuttering and stalling
And a win for my home team.

JIT animations

  1. Look at these animations
  2. Create an animation of a positive-value word, eg hope, joy, love, friend(ship), peace, harmony, unity, freedom, justice, service, kindness
    1. Could use JIT drawing to plan
    2. Difference between moving and adding animation
  3. ** Create an animation of a sporting action – could use the example sheets

Success steps:

  • Coloured background
  • At least 20 screens – maybe a lot more…
  • Very small changes
  • Red arrow = copy, add
  • Green arrow = move, replace

Gifpaint

  1. Go to gifpaint.com
  2. Work out how to use it and explore the tools
  3. ** Create an animation of a sporting action – could use the example sheets

Scratch

  1. Log into Scratch
  2. Go to Stick person animation project
  3. On costume tab, right-hand click and “duplicate” to make a new costume
  4. Change it slightly
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make an animation
  6. Press green flag to test; on code tab change wait 0.1 seconds to slow down/speed up

This term, we will be creating animated stories using JIT.  The first stage is learning how to use animate in JIT to move objects around the screen.

    1. Log into j2e and click on JIT
    2. Watch the first video then have a go
        1. Choose your own background and character
        2. Make sure you move it only a little each frame

You should now have:

  • A character moving smoothly across the screen

Tip – if your animation is not smooth enough, add more pictures in between the jumpy pictures.

Now watch these videos in turn and have a go at each technique.

 

You should now have:

  • A character moving smoothly across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to the character

 

You should now have:

  • TWO character moving SMOOTHLY across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to a character

You should now have:

  • TWO character moving SMOOTHLY across the screen
  • Something added to the background picture
  • Some effects added to a character
  • A “mix” page with your animation and a descriptive sentence.
  • ** More than one page – carry on the story…
  • ** Use the microphone to record and play your narration.
