Dear Students, you have voted for Mathilda, so let’s start working on this wonderful story!



Sessions preparations

Come with a page of preparation:

  1. Who is Roald DAHL;
  2. Who plays in the Mathilda Movie, who is the stage director, did it get any special awards;
  3. Each chapter will be presented by a group of two and you will be able to assess their performance. You have to read the text as well so as to do your part of the job: ask them any vocabulary point you need clarified! Presentation is made by a group of two or three students who should:
  4. Summarize the chapter and present the characters who appear in this chapter. Discuss the themes in each chapter (such as education, selfishness, hypocrisy, schools…). The mark will be based on: Vocabulary (1pt), Grammar (1point), ideas (2 points), original presentation (2points);
  5. all the class has to answer questions 1-2-3  BEFORE YOU READ P. 39


On December 5th, we listened to the presentation of the introduction and watched the end of the movie which we had started two weeks ago. Some of you noticed that subtitles don’t allow us to understand all the wonderful humour of this movie, so practice on watching movies in original soundtrack and soon you’ll be fluent enough to understand everything 😉
