Out, damned spot!
14th October 2015
As part of their English GCSE one of the books our pupils have to study is Macbeth. Quite a heavy read…and as a lot of our students are visual learners English Specialist Shamila Ali took 11HD to cineworld to watch the new Macbeth movie. 11HD continue the grisly tale…..
“After a quick breakfast, where we talked about the story and how it will be different from the book, we took our seats. The lights darkened and the film started. Straight away we found some of the accents hard but it was a super film to look at. The fight scenes were brutal. As we had been studying the book we could follow the story – even if we couldn’t understand the actors. We enjoyed the fight scenes and then tension between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth but it would have been better if there was more action. Thanks Shamila!”
As we were leaving the cinema a member of the public, who had been watching the film, congratulated our students on their great behaviour. 11HD are Connor, Nathan, Joel, Jamie and Jason. Top job lads!
