Matilda school scene


[ Shivering ] [ Cheering ] QUIET ! GET TO CLASS BEFORE
I THROW YOU ALL IN THE CHOKEY. LAVENDER, WHAT’S
MY TEACHER LIKE ? [ Trunchbull ]
RUN, RUN, RUN ! FASTER ! GET IN.
QUICKLY ! [ Narrator ]
BUT MATILDA’S TEACHER,
MISS HONEY, WAS ONE OF THOSE
REMARKABLE PEOPLE… WHO APPRECIATES EVERY SINGLE
CHILD FOR WHO SHE OR HE IS. I SCOOPED THESE
UP FOR YOU, MISS HONEY. OH, HOW LOVELY.
THANK YOU, AMANDA. OKAY, LISTEN UP, EVERYBODY.
WE HAVE A NEW STUDENT
WITH US TODAY. THIS IS MATILDA WORMWOOD.
I’D LIKE YOU TO SIT HERE
WITH LAVENDER. YOU ALL REMEMBER HOW SCARY
YOUR FIRST DAYS AT SCHOOL WERE, SO I’D LIKE YOU TO BE
ESPECIALLY NICE TO MATILDA
AND MAKE HER FEEL WELCOME. COULD YOU GET HER WORKBOOK
FOR HER, PLEASE ? YES, MISS HONEY. YOU CAN SIT DOWN. [ Narrator ] MISS HONEY
WAS A WONDERFUL TEACHER
AND A FRIEND TO EVERYONE. BUT HER LIFE WAS NOT AS SIMPLE
AND BEAUTIFUL AS IT SEEMED. MISS HONEY HAD
A DEEP, DARK SECRET. THOUGH IT CAUSED HER GREAT PAIN,
SHE DID NOT LET IT INTERFERE
WITH HER TEACHING. WELL, MATILDA,
YOU’VE COME ON A VERY GOOD DAY, BECAUSE WE’RE GOING
TO REVIEW EVERYTHING
WE’VE LEARNED SO FAR. IT’S ALL RIGHT IF YOU
DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS,
BECAUSE YOU’RE BRAND NEW. BUT IF YOU DO KNOW AN ANSWER,
JUST… RAISE YOUR HAND, OKAY ? ALL RIGHT. WE’VE BEEN WORKING
ON OUR TWO-TIMES TABLES. WOULD ANYONE
LIKE TO DEMONSTRATE ? [ Chattering ] OKAY. LET’S DO SOME TOGETHER. TWO TIMES FOUR IS ? [ Class ]
EIGHT. – TWO TIMES SIX IS ?
– TWELVE. TWO TIMES NINE IS ? EIGHTEEN ! EXCELLENT !
YOU’VE BEEN PRACTICING. PRETTY SOON YOU’LL BE ABLE
TO DO ANY MULTIPLICATION, WHETHER IT’S
TWO TIMES SEVEN ? FOURTEEN ! VERY GOOD.
OR 13 TIMES 379 ? FOUR THOUSAND, NINE HUNDRED…
AND TWENTY-SEVEN. I BEG YOUR PARDON. I THINK THAT’S THE ANSWER. 13 TIMES 379 ? FOUR, NINE, TWO, SEVEN ? HMPH. IT IS. WOW ! MATILDA, YOU KNOW HOW
TO MULTIPLY BIG NUMBERS ? I READ THIS BOOK LAST YEAR
ON MATHEMATICS AT THE LIBRARY. YOU LIKE TO READ ? OH, YES.
I LOVE TO READ. – WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO READ ?
– EVERYTHING. BUT LATELY I’VE BEEN
READING “DARLES CHICKENS.” CHARLES DICKENS.
I COULD READ HIM EVERY DAY. SO COULD I. ALL RIGHT, EVERYONE.
TAKE OUT YOUR WORKBOOKS. LET’S START
WITH SECTION THREE. I’LL BE BACK IN A MOMENT.
