The Kings Speech

This movie is like nothing I have ever seen. It is telling the story of when King George VI was becoming King. He suffered from a stammer and therefor needed a speech therapist. With his speech therapist the King successfully made speeches though. He still struggled however he worked hard and eventually became a successful ruler. This movie will tear at your heart strings as you follow the King through from 1936 to 1938 when he eventually becomes king and then to 1939 as the second world war begins.
Branksome Bugle rating: 5/5

Gnomeo and Juliet

This cartoon film is a hilarious version of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet however they have changed it so it is more child friendly. Instead of having two Italian families in deep hate it is 2 back gardens who's garden gnomes fight behind closed doors. When Juliet from the Capulet garden sees a beautiful flower and tries to retrieve it she runs into Gnomeo and it is love at first sight. The famous people doing the voices for this film are very good however for some reason I don't think this movie is anything special. I only went to see the movie because there was nothing better on. So for that reason I can't give it 5/5.

Branksome Bugle rating: 4/5

Don't stare!

Next time there is a lonely cyclist stood at the traffic lights infront off you, please don't stare. If the time is 7:45 on a cold winters morning and there is nothin else to look at just think that cyclist is embarraced in his dark blue helmet. He can feel everytime you look from your warm car window and besides what has he ever done to you? So please be aware of him so you don't run him over but remember to not stare for that cyclist is me!

Yogi Bear 2D

Yogi Bear was an amusing and funny movie. I went to see it in 2D. I think it would have been a little bit better in 3D though. The movie is enjoyable and very easy to understand. So I don’t feel like I can give it 5 stars or even 4 stars because I think there could have been more twists and turns. Everything was expected. Despite this though I would recommend this movie to children and people who like original and funny entertainment.

Happy Birthday Branksome Bugle

All November I was looking forward to the birthday party because I was excited to celebrate 1 year of the Branksome Bugle. It was the 19th last year when I was approached by Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Surtees and told about the idea of a School newspaper.
Jenny Chapman, MP for Darlington, and her cool PA Lola turned up to the party. Also Mr Haylock and new head teacher Mr Kipling attended.
There was food and drinks for members of the Bugle to enjoy while socialising with each other.
During the party there was a birthday cake and after singing happy birthday, Katie ceremonially cut the first slice into the Cake.
