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 :-
Sina and the Eel.
One day leana's mother went to the creek to get sea water to cook their food.
When leana's mother looked in her basket, she saw a little eel.
So she thought, my little Letia would love this as a pet.
So Letia went home and gave Leana the pet eel.
As days went past, Leana's eel grew bigger and bigger, so she and her father dug a pond for the eel
The next day, Leana went to visit her eel. "Aaaagh, it bit me!"
Letia ran home into her father. "Why are you crying Leana?" Leana said to her dad, "The eel bit me!"
Her dad got so angry he did not know what to do.
"I know, we will run away from here, far away!" Leana ran and ran, but the eel was still chasing her through the villages.
Then a warrior saw Leana and he saw her crying.
Then he asked her, "Leana, what's wrong?" So Leana told the warrior what was happening and the warrior helped her.
They killed the eel and, as requested by the eel, Leana planted the head near a brick wall.
When Leana went back later to where she buried the eel's head, she saw a coconut tree had grown.
And the coconut looked just like the head of the eel.
