Georgie holds a Narnia English lesson.

May 29, 2012


Georgie held a Narnia-related lesson for a junior level English class at Bradford Grammar School, her current school. The class had recently watched the films as a part of a school project, and Georgie was invited to talk about the film and how it's like being a child actress.
Bradford Grammar School released information about it in two news letters.

From the senior school’s Spring 2012 newsletter:
Georgie Henley is a Sixth Form pupil at Bradford Grammar School. She is widely known for her portrayal of Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia film series, and as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award, Georgie visited a Clock House English lesson. The Junior School J4 pupils have recently watched and discussed this film as part of their English curriculum. The children had the opportunity to meet and interview Georgie to find out what it is like being a young actress. They learnt lots about film making, and heard stories of the fun and hard work required on the set of Narnia. Georgie helped them use their imaginations to act out different fantastical creatures for Lucy to meet. It was a thoroughly enjoyable treat to be able to use drama and improvisation, led by a successful actress, to explore the different characters from a book during an English lesson.

They then used their imaginations to come up with different fantastical creatures for ‘Lucy’ to meet. It was a thoroughly enjoyable treat to end the term using drama, improvisation and to think outside the box in an English lesson.
