Popcorn Maker – we’ve been mashing up videos to make unexpected dance/ music combos. Some year 6 ones here:
Jake & Alfie –https://mertonparkprimary.makes.org/popcorn/2436
Olivia & Mrs S – https://mertonparkprimary.makes.org/popcorn/243l
Everyone enjoyed it – we had to think about matching musical beats, how to splice and overlay videos, and adding “events”. More to explore in future lessons…

Please use the comments section below to let us know of anything computer-related that you enjoy or would like to own (we can’t give you one but would be interested to hear about it!). Also, any interesting technology related news you would like to share.
We tested Powtoon out in Code Club and loved it. We made some promotional Powtoons for Code Code and showed them to the Year 6 teacher. She asked Year 6 to make some Powtoons explaining some maths concepts. You can watch them here http://year6matters.primaryblogger.co.uk/. Well done Code Clubbers for figuring it out and demo’ing it.
Nicola is loving the look of Powtoon who have offered us a year’s free subscription. Thank you, Powtoon! Why not experiment with the free version over the holidays, and once term starts, I will sign you up with premium accounts and we’ll see if we can make a cool Code Club video. Here’s a little promo video – Evan, it even has “awesomeness” in it, just for you.
Following on from our html lessons, you may enjoy this video:
This is what Nicola would really, really like to own! Lots of the teachers have been admiring it too. Maybe we will wait until they are a little bit cheaper…be warned, they heat the plastic up to a very high temperature so may be a little hot for children to use:
And this is definitely on Tim’s wishlist – now that he has mastered his Raspberry Pi:
