      Hi Giovanna,
      For the Computing task, it needs to be made into a film at a later date. So you could do a series of several drawings which could be made into a flip book to create an animation when put together. You could watch this video if you’re unsure
      I hope that helps.

      Hi Luka,
      According to the website for the competition, they’re in the process of adapting the competition based on the fact that schools have closed. I’ll keep my eye on it and let everyone know when they’ve finalised the procedure for submitting entries. In the meantime, I’d love to see what you’ve come up with, so please feel free to email it to me.
