Year 4


Welcome to the Year 4 Computing Blog.

Have a look at what our wonderful Year 4 children have been up to in their weekly Computing lessons.


Year 4 started creating Superman comic strips today. The children inserted, arranged and recoloured pictures and added comic style speech and thought bubbles.  


Comic Text

Year 4 were Introduced to their new ‘Photostories’, topic this morning. The pupils will be creating movies and comics during this project. Today, the children looked at the types of text that are used in a comic strip and had a go at creating their own onomatopoeic words. 


As part of #Antibullyingweek, the pupils in Year 4 have been accessing online resources to understand the impact of bullying.


Here are some examples of the superb animations completed by the Year 4 pupils. 


The fantastic Year 4’s enhanced their animations today, by importing backgrounds that they had researched and saved from the internet. The children then animated on top of the image. They looked very professional! 


Over the past few weeks, Year 4 have been developing their animation skills using Pivot Animator. This software allows children to animate a range of stick figures by capturing still images, that are then played together to create the illusion of movement. 


Is It Real? 

As part of their internet safety topic, Year 4 tried some simple photo manipulation to see how easily a fake image could be created. The children were very creative and produced some scarily believable images. 


What an exciting morning! The Year 4 children used the new computer suite and logged into their new typing course, Kaz Type.  Throughout the year, the children will be accessing their course to improve their speed and accuracy in typing.
