Trip to British Film Institute

Today, we went on a trip to the British Film Institute with Years 8 and 9 students to explore the Spanish Language and learn about different spanish speaking countries' culture.


The Students saw 3 short Spanish films (also known as "Cortometraje") and analysed the cinematography, the themes, and their favourites. We then had a lovely lunch in the sunshine before watching a feature length film called "Landfill Harmonica" which is all about an unassuming orchestra made up of children from a small community in a landfill near Asunción in Cateura, Paraguay.

Students were excellently behaved and participated more than any other school. Massive shout outs to Maaida, Finlay, Olivia and Jaheim for putting their hands up and volunteering answers in Spanish in front of the whole crowd.

Here are some testimonies from the students who attended:

"Trip was really fun! We got to do challenging activities and watched a very interesting documentary that blew our minds. We found some bits challenging, but interesting at the same time.

The Cortometraje we enjoyed the most was called "Luminaris", and the message that stuck to us the most was about not giving up on your dreams, and helping one another is a key tool to achieving said dreams. The highlight of our day was when we had lunch near the river, and just generally the whole experience of watching a film on the biggest screen in the UK.

All School Trips from Harris Battersea are amazing!"

Finally, we had lovely feedback from passengers on the train and from the staff at the BFI Imax. On the train, passengers remarked “what polite young people you have with you. Which school is this?”. At the BFI, staff said it was so impressive how much our students wanted to participate and were impressed by their level of Spanish and their accents especially!
