The Unfinished Drink - Reading | By Sanujan

This week for reading, we learnt about the story of Privet Ted (La Tour Mollet d'Auvergne). A poem written for Privet Ted was our main focus, because it told his story. We had two tasks to complete, 1 was to make a summary of the poem, and 2 was to create a DLO talking about Privet Ted's story. For both of these tasks, I worked with Jack, and we both decided to make a small animation for the DLO. This poem is both a sad, but happy poem. The sad part being Privet Ted never returning, but the happy part being him not forgotten. The full poem can be found midway through the animation if you want to read it yourself. Although unlike a real animation, this was done with a few different pictures, rather than over a hundred. In the end we think we did a great job, and that it turned out really well. Hopefully you think the same.

  3. Talofa Lava Jack and Sanjuan,
    WOW, I had never heard this story or read the poem. Thank you so much for sharing. What amazing new learning you have shared. I am impressed with the DLO you have created, I like that you have kept it simple and only used a few pictures as I think it makes the story more powerful as you focus on reading your words which are very well written. I am going to share this poem with others. Great learning team.
