Computing – Comics

In Year Four, we have been using iPads to create comics depicting the fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel.

We thought about the different events in the story and used a safe search engine to find images for our comic strips.

We also manipulated the text and the images to create different eye-catching styles.

We included some thought bubbles and speech bubbles with sentences we thought the characters might say.

We experimented with different themes and layouts based on what we thought would display the story most clearly.

Here are some of our comics showing different layouts, themes and images.

Have you used ComicLife before? What have you created?

What careers might use the skills we were developing through our comics?

What could we add to our comics to develop them further?
