Christmas in the City
The streets were lit up by lights - how they glowed.
I watched in amazement as I walked down the road.
More shopping than lounging,
One store to the other,
And I laughed and I played as I followed my mother.
The carol singers sang,
The bell ringers rang,
The little children screamed
As their twinkling eyes beamed.
I saw such a sight in this one little night,
But when I got home I was out like a light.
As I fell to the bed my mind drifted away
To the excitement that would happen that amazing next day.
That next morning I opened the door
To find a thousand presents, maybe millions or more!
As I ripped and I tore I shouted with glee,
As my mother exclaimed “Look, more presents to see!”

Welcome to what we hope will be a regular feature on the website for the rest of this year and beyond. This is the first news roundup from this year's Media Team. Well done to Daniel, Alex, Ross, Eoghan K, Steven and Eoghan S. who did the research, writing and recording for this exciting new feature. We hope you enjoy this, we're looking forward to the next one already!
Recently, Ms.Kelly’s, Mr.O’Reilly’s and Mr.Lane’s class went to the P.E. hall to make movies with a unique animation type called stop animation.
The person who helped us was an artist by the name of Mick Fortune. We used lego, toys etc to create our movies. We also used small cameras that we used manually with our hands as well as cameras on tripods wired up to a laptop.
Our movies were roughly only ten seconds long but took almost an hour and a half to be made. Our storylines varied but we all made our movies in the same way.
It was fun and exciting to make our movies especially because we were with our friends and, although it was also hard to come up with a storyline, everyone did it in time. We also put sound on our movies. In order to do that Mick got a voice recorder, replayed the movie and told us to make whatever sound we thought fit.
