Lady of Shalott Rashomons

In English, the Kraken bubble has been looking at the end of the Lady of Shalott poem. We decided to write about the scene from the point of view of four bystanders. With this in mind we created rashomons where each participant gives his or her view of the situation. The pupils had a lot of fun with shifts in formality as they gave a voice to each of their characters. Here’s Oli and Lucy’s work:

Amelie’s Lady of Shalott monologue

In English we have been writing a monologue from the point of view of the Lady of Shalott. We placed ourselves in her situation when she is distracted from her weaving by Sir Lancelot. Amelie’s piece successfully captures the tension between her heart and her head.

Camelot: City Guides

In English, we have been studying Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem, The Lady of Shalott. As a bubble, the Kraken group decided to write their own city guides to Camelot. Here’s four examples.
