This is our third video that we made this year. We worked in pairs and we had to dress up. We had to say “Níl” or “Tá”. We had to say it all in Irish. We used an iPod to make the video and then we put it on the Mac to make the movie. We watched in on wide screen on the white board in class. It is a bit funny.

We made a video in Irish yesterday. It is called Éadaí. We made the video using an iPod. We had to dress up in different clothes. Teacher got the clothes in the costume room. Some of the clothes were too big for us. We had to say “Féach orm. Tá ____ orm”. We had fun making the Irish video.

We made a video in Irish yesterday. We used the iPod to make the video. We videoed everybody in the class. We videoed “Ar Scoil” things that we were learning about last week. We imported the videos onto the Mac laptop. We used the iMovie programme to put the video together. It was weird listening to our voices on the video. We had fun doing it.

The Emperor’s New Clothes is an old story. It was written by Hans Christian Andersen, a storyteller from Denmark. The story was good fun. The story was about an Emperor who liked clothes. Two mysterious people came into the village. They went into the Emperor’s castle and they told the Emperor that they could make the finest cloth in the village. The Emperor gave them lots of money to make the finest outfit for him. The two scam artists pretended to make the finest clothes. The Emperor sent his Prime Minister to check on the outfit, but he saw nothing. They said to the Prime Minister that if he could see nothing then he was stupid or unqualified. So the Prime Minister said that they were doing a great job. But he didn’t really see anything.

The two men told the Emperor that the outfit was as light as a spider’s web. They said it would feel like you were wearing nothing. Then they ran off into the woods with all the money. Then the Emperor went out to walk in the parade, but he was only wearing his underwear. The crowds started cheering. A little boy really wanted to see the Emperor’s new clothes. But, he didn’t see them because the Emperor was wearing no clothes. Then he was sad. The crowd then started booing. The Emperor felt stupid for believing them.

We watched the video of the story of the Emperor’s new clothes. It was good fun.

We watched a video about Antarctica in school today. We got into groups and we brainstormed what we knew about Antarctica. We then watched this video. We hope you like it.

We looked at the story of Peter and the Wolf. It was written by Sergei Prokofiev. Each character in the story is represented by an instrument. Peter is the string instruments; the bird is the flute; Grandpa is the bassoon; the duck is the oboe; the cat is the clarinet; the wolf is the French horn; the hunters shots are the kettle drums. We went onto the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra Kids website to listen to the sounds of the different instruments. Mr. Quinn read the story of Peter and the Wolf to us last week. Today we looked at a video of Peter and the Wolf on YouTube. We all thought it was very good. It was a cartoon with the music in the background. We are making some pictures of a part of the story.

We created Flickr Lunes and made them into a video. A Lune is a kind of poetry with three lines. There are three words on the first line, five words on the second line and three words on the third line. We used our iPod Touches to create the Lunes. We used pictures from Flickr to create the Lunes. We used Photostory to put all the Lunes together and make the video. We recorded our own voices reading the Lunes for the video. You can watch our video here. We hope you enjoy the video.
