Our geckos are inquiring about stories. They are exploring into traditional and digital way of telling a story. To reiterate a story and to further delving deep into the inquiry, Silver screen was organised in the school, where the screening of the movie FERDINAND was done for the Geckos.
Ferdinand is an animated movie based on Munro Leaf’s classic children’s book about a bull FERDINAND. He was born to be a fighting bull, bred to compete with matadors in the Spanish bullfighting ring. However, he prefers flowers and friendship to training and fighting. The movie has strong messages of nonviolence, respect for Ferdinand’s principles, and the friendships that can develop between creatures who are very different from each other. Ferdinand finds clever ways to avoid violence and conflict, including humour and kindness.
Our geckos were very enthusiastic before the show. They were thrilled to see our own Multi-Purpose Hall like a movie theatre. The facilitators ensured that the learners have real life experience, hence they were given movie tickets outside the theatre. After showing it, they were allowed to enter the theatre where they were made to sit on their respective seats. During the interval, children were served popcorn and juice, which added to the movie fun. It was a wonderful learning experience for our children, they understood the story and the message behind the story.
