Last entry to this blog

This is goodbye from this blog page. The children who have featured on this page have now moved on to new classes for the 2011 year.
I have started a new blog page for 2011 with a new class of hopefully eager students. I have included a link to this new page for you to view our work.
Thanks for following our 2010 blog.

Our new page for 2011

Maui and the Sun animated movie

This is the movie of Maui and the sun that we made. First we drew the pictures on Kidpix using a mimio pen on the big whiteboard. Ms H showed us how to cut around things and move them. We had to save lots and lots of pictures. When we tried playing our movie on kidpix it went too slow so Mrs H put it on Moviemaker. We had to add the sound to our movie as well. We are really proud of our work.
