Finn McCool and The Giant’s Causeway

Drama performance in English Class !

Last Wednesday, 6eB pupils performed the theatre play they had written on the legend of Finn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway.

Mercredi dernier les élèves de 6eB ont interprété les pièces de théâtre qu’ils avaient eux-même écrites sur la légende de Finn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway.

The Giant’s Causeway ou la Chaussée des Géants est un magnifique site naturel que l’on peut admirer sur la côte Nord de l’Irlande du Nord. La légende raconte qu’elle aurait été l’œuvre d’un géant irlandais, Finn McCool qui voulait rejoindre l’Écosse pour aller combattre son ennemi, Benandonner... très fort mais pas très malin l’histoire aurait pu mal finir pour Finn, mais heureusement sa femme, Oonagh, réussit à lui sauver la mise grâce à son intelligence et sa ruse....

Here is one of the play written by the pupils.
Voici un des texte écrit par les élèves.

The legend of Finn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway

A theatre play written by Eva, Anna, Méline and Loïc

Narrator  : Today we are in Northern Ireland with Finn McCool. Benandonner lives on the Scottish coast. They are enemies. Benandonner and Finn shout insults.
Benandonner : You are stupid !
Finn McCool : I’m not stupid ! You are the smallest giant in the world. I am the tallest !
Benandonner : Yourself !
Finn McCool : I am the strongest !
Benandonner  : No, it’s me and you are …ugly !
Narrator  : One day, Benandonner is very angry and he shouts
Benandonner  : Come over here and fight me you idiot !
Finn McCool : I come, you stupid man !
Narrator  : Finn takes large pieces of rocks and throws them into the sea for seven days and nights. He makes a path but…
Finn McCool : I’m very tired ! I can’t fight ! Help ! Oonagh !
Narrator : Oonagh is Finn’s wife and she is the most intelligent.
Oonagh : wait !
Narrator : Finn and Oonagh have a baby.
Oonagh (goes to her mother’s) : Can you look after the baby, mum ?
(Oonagh comes back home)
Finn McCool : You have a plan ?
Oonagh : Yes, quick ! Get into the baby’s cot, when you hear « ouch » cry like a baby !
Narrator  : Oonagh bakes some cakes. And she takes three flat stones in the garden, the size and shape of cakes.
Benandonner : Is it Finn’s cottage ?
Oonagh : It is my dear man.
Benandonner : I want to see him.
Oonagh : Oh, he isn’t at home but please, come in !
Benandonner : Oh !It smells nice !
Oonagh : Yes, I make some cakes. Come in !
Narrator : She gives him a flat stone and take a cake for herself ; and Benandonner bites inside the stone.
Benandonner : Ouch ! You can eat that !
Finn McCool : (crying) ouin, ouin, ouin !
Oonagh : Oh it is the baby !
Benandonner : (Looking at Finn in the baby’s cot) It is a very very big baby !
Narrator  : Benandonner is terrified and he runs back home very fast !
Finn McCool : thank you my darling !
