Diaries of a Mexican Superhero...

9A have been considering the different perceptions that surround the issue of migration and developing their skills in creative writing.

They produced some great pieces of writing and designed their own superheroes which they annotated. Their work is now on display in Room 20 on the Arundel Site...


They also had the opportunity to use my Flip video camera and film various scenes of their diaries and put them together as a movie. We had a good laugh on Friday, with Dan's ability to change his accent (more Eastern European and Scottish at times!), the seagulls, the baked beans that enabled Matt to cross the border, Joe walking up the steps of the amphitheatre into the USA! Not forgetting the wasp on the camera at the end. Brilliant 9A!!!!

This is a great idea for a lesson. Dan, there's nothing wrong with Scottish accents either :) Also, fits in quite well with Alan Parkinson's Knock Knock activity- If you are the USA, who do you let in officially and who do you send away?

Thanks Kenny! Will have to investigate that :)
