I am thrilled to announce to all Redbridge Primary schools the launch of the Anithings /Redbridge Animation Competition.
This competition is open to all Redbridge schools and offers you, our teachers and subject leaders the chance to work with some very creative software, and bring excitement and creative opportunities to the classes and clubs you teach. Anithings was recently showcased at our Subject Leaders event and attracted a lot of interest from you.
What is Anithings?
Anithings is a brand new children's creativity tool. It enables animated stories to be created simply and quickly, allowing children's creativity to run wild.
Children can design and create their own characters and settings or use ready-made ones from the bank. Stories are animated by simply dragging the timeline slider and changing an object’s position, colour or size, or by recording motion using the mouse.
Animated stories can be created to link with any topic, be it Vikings, Pirates, Fairy tales or wherever your imagination takes you. The addition of speech bubbles to your characters enables a unique storytelling medium to enhance and build upon literacy skills. Add special effects to enhance mini masterpieces or use the storyboard to plan an epic movie.
So what do you have to do?
