It is an extremely famous story and has been translated into many languages, including Vietnamese. The stage version of this came to Hanoi in 2013, so some of you may have been lucky enough to see it then. Gulliver travels as a surgeon and ship’s captain and discovers new nations with incredibly wonderful characters such as the Lilliputians and the Houyhnhnms!
Year 5 are completely hooked by the story and were even more so on Wednesday, when they had an actual class visit from Gulliver himself! Although a little old, he was able to recall all of his adventures and answer the children’s thoughtful questions. This is an example of the work of the extremely creative teachers we employ at the school and how they make the learning so relevant and interesting for the children. Year 5 will now write newspaper articles about Gulliver’s adventures and be able to include some first-hand quotes.
