- To understand what stop motion animation is
Pupils should be taught to:
- design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller part
- use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and outputs
Pupils needing extra support: Help them to make small, simple movements. Encourage them to make mistakes and discuss what they could do to improve.
Pupils working at greater depth: Ask to break their blob into two pieces and try to animate two blobs at a time. Remind them that they will need to move both blobs between every shot and to keep the movements small.
