Last week a group of Year 8 highly capable English students participated in the English Enrichment Day ‘Novel to Film’ led by Mrs Sarah Colaiacovo. The students participated in activities that explored the transformation of novels into films. It was valuable to gather students together who had regular reading habits and enjoyed reading. The majority of students came to the conclusion that they enjoyed the novels more than the films. This was due to their preference for their own creativity and imagination when visualising key characters and their inner feelings as well as settings and other narrative elements. The skills demonstrated in the transformation of novels to films were made evident in this engaging day designed to extend these students in their English course.
