On Monday 10th December, 7R went to Vue cinema at ‘The Rock’, Bury to watch the newly released version of the Grinch, as they are currently studying this Dr Seuss classic in English. This was a good way to ensure that the curriculum was accessed by all children, regardless of ability, by offering a visual representation as well as the written text. The class travelled by minibus and stocked up on snacks before sitting down to enjoy the movie.
The film was appropriate for all ages and had the ‘feel good factor’, getting everybody excited for the fast approaching Christmas holidays.
The treat didn’t stop there, the class and staff then enjoyed an ‘eat all you can’ Chinese buffet lunch, with pupils quick to divulge, that both Mr Smith and Mrs Simpson enjoyed three whole plates as well as dessert…they must be working on their Christmas bodies early…little puddings.
