Dear Parents/Caregivers

This term Room 12 have been reading the novel “The Witches” by Roald Dahl.  Throughout this novel, we have been discussing the characters and their characteristics and features. We have been talking about descriptive language, and how it helps the reader to create pictures in their minds.

As we have reached the conclusion of the novel, the class would like to watch the movie to reinforce the concepts learned and make comparisons between the movie and the descriptions in the book.  The 1990 version of “The Witches” by Director Nicolas Roeg is rated PG (which means the movie is recommended to be watched under parental or adult guidance), and as such we require parental permission to share the movie with the class.  A Parent’s Guide to the movie is available on IMDB.com, including a plot synopsis and details of aspects of the movie contributing to this rating.

Please complete the attached slip below and return to me as soon as possible.  We intend on watching the movie on Thursday 28 September 2017.  If you do not return the slip below your child will be unable to watch the movie.

Kind regards

Sara Melville
