PROCESS OF THE PROJECT :
To write a myth as part of our Term Inquiry around our Community Polyfest. We studied Myths by Gavin Bishop and at the Literacy Hut online. We developed a check list/criteria of great myths before writing our own, then creating one as a group. We then turned our myth into dialogue to perform ourselves.
We wanted to record our myth for our community, whanau, friends and pen pals across the seas to enjoy. We purchased new iPad minis for the whole school and learnt how to use iMovies. We exported our project to vimeo to share/embed in our blog
