Your chance to win a year’s subscription to RM EasiMaths or a Free Pupil Workshop for your School!

As the soccer World Cup in Brazil gets under way this summer, we thought that it would be good if our competition for term six was to create a digital animation with a World Cup theme. The competition is for Key Stage One and Two children, including age appropriate entries from special needs schools. In addition to providing an excellent opportunity for children to practise their digital animation skills, this competition will also give them the chance to hopefully capture the excitement of the World Cup.

EasiMathsThe winning school will receive a year’s subscription to RM EasiMaths, kindly donated by RM Education. The runner up school will receive a free 123ICT pupil workshop.

All entries will be published on our website http://www.123ict.co.uk and notification of the winners will also be sent to our schools during Term One of the 2014/15 academic year.

Creating a World Cup Themed Animation

Entries for this competition can to be created using virtually any animation software. Entrants can either create a computer animation, using software such as Pivot Animator, Revelation National Art, or 2 Create a Super Story. Or, if wished, create a stop-motion animation using modelling clay, popular building bricks, or similar; recording the motion using digital cameras and frame animation software from manufacturers such as Digital Blue, ZU3D or Lego. In essence, providing the end result can be viewed on a computer using a recognised video file format (WMV, MP4, etc), virtually any method of digital capture can be used to create your animation.
