On the afternoon of Wednesday 6th October 110 students from S6 and S7, as well as 7 teachers, viewed a classic British film: the new James Bond. It was great to spend some social time together after the restrictions of the past eighteen months. In terms of the English language and culture, the trip was an enriching experience; some students expressed an interest in watching other classic Bond movies or in reading the Bond novels by Ian Fleming. We are looking forward to some great follow up work and discussion! Given the numerous thrilling stunts and action scenes – as well as some surprisingly tender moments – we left the cinema shaken as well as stirred.
