I missed this thread first time round - let me add Pivot Animator to the mix, a really fun drawing program which allows you to create animations with stick-man (or stick-dog, stick-giraffe, stick... etc).
The most recent version is much better then the original too!! (Pivot)
That really is fun and the concepts are handy for the ICT curriculum! We had many a funny lesson with that!
Pivot Stickfigure Animator Freeware download and review - create animated cartoons from SnapFiles). Is this the one you mean, or is there a newer one somewhere?
It's Pivot 2 the latest one but there's supposed to be a Pivot 3!!!
The Sept 2004 release was 2.2.5, so it sounds like we're talking about the same version...
It's been a while since i taught so i've lost track
What about introducing some Cross-Curricular topics into your ICT Club?
If you have a Nature Club you could try setting up a webcam in a Bird Box so that the children can view a nesting bird.
A local Primary School near us has a badger set in the playing filed - they have a web cam set-up to monitor that.
If you have one of those USB Microscopes they could maybe go Pond Dipping and look at creatures under the microscope.
Nature Detectives - nature detectives is a good website - they have online activities, downloads and they often run special activities and competitions online etc
I'm sure there are other subjects that you could introduce too such as History, Georgraphy etc
