... and you have finally escaped from Tweedys’ farm with your fellow-hens. Now that you are free and that you live in the wild, you have decided to write an open letter to explain the reasons for your escape.
This training task was given to the students as part of our unit All equal? & following our analysis of two extracts from Chicken Run.
Here is one of my students' work!
If I’m writing to you today, it’s to explain why we decided to escape from Tweedy’s Farm.
First of all, you can’t imagine how great it is to be free, to live in the wild: running in the grass on which there are no fence, no guard, and no violence.
To my mind, laying eggs all day long is named exploitation. We were in a concentration camp! We felt so sad and persecuted. We deserved a free life!
At first, we came up with a lot of questions about life out there, but today Tweedy’s exploitation is so far away.
