At the beginning of November all the Year 7 pupils went to watch the Mexican film ‘Coco’ at Everyman cinema in Barnet. The film is based on the holiday of Día de Muertos, a 12-year-old boy named Miguel, and his journey to the Land of the Dead in search of his own heritage and history. We enjoyed watching the movie in Spanish with English subtitles and we sang along to ‘Un poco loco’ which we had learnt in Spanish lessons.
It was a great experience for all involved, from watching the film on the comfy cinema sofas – and sharing a few tears in the last couple of minutes – to the tube ride. We have already booked the venue for next year’s event!
