As part of our English work, we are looking at Myths and Legends. We had to choose one to develop and then produce an animation to go with it. We wrote our script for the animation and planned what was going to happen. We then had to read out our narration. The animation was produced on a combination of Adobe Photoshop and Windows Movie Maker.
Here is our Myths and Legends Script :-
Once, a long time ago, there was a king named Hrothgar and his mead hall called Heorot. But Heorot wasn’t like any other mead hall. It was haunted, by a hideous monster named Grendel. Grendel would come every night and start slaughtering the men inside. This story was heard by Beowulf. A mighty warrior of many deeds. When Beowulf arrived a party was thrown in his honour. But it soon was ruined as Grendel started smashing through the ceiling and screams were heard everywhere. Beowulf stood up and the fight began. Grendel and Beowulf started hacking and slashing at each other. Blood oozing from the many wounds scattered upon them. But then all of a sudden Beowulf grasped Grendel’s arm with both hands and wrenched it off of his shoulder. Grendel had been beaten and left to die. And Beowulf hung Grendel’s arm in the mead hall to remind him and everybody else of the day that he beat Grendel. King Hrothgar was so grateful that he offered that in his death Beowulf would be king. Beowulf slept with a smile on his face. Death surrounded him. Had Grendel not been killed? No, this was the work of Grendel’s mother. An even more fierce version of Grendel. Could Beowulf beat Grendel’s mother? Could he save the day once again?
