A week ago we looked at the poem Sweetieraptors which as a lot of Scot’s words and is great fun. The biggies wrote their own verses, being careful to rhyme and follow the rhythm of the original.
We put together the movie to show our poems. Each pupil made a keynote slide to cary the text and used the green screen feature of iMovie to add that text onto of their movies. They then added the voice.
Everyone AirDropped their movies to Aaron who put them altogether into one longer video.
For Scots Week the Biggies have been listening to and reciting poems and writing their own. You can read the Poems, listen to the poets read them and see their illustrations on the Scots 2019 project page.
The Biggies have been making some animations of “Blaeberry Mou” a poem in Scots by William Soutar.
