Mannequin Challenge
The Mannequin Challenge is the current craze that has
taken social media by storm. Everyone, from sports idols to
pop stars, is taking the challenge on.
The Mannequin Challenge is a viral Internet video trend that
started in October 2016, where people remain inactive
while video is recorded, usually with music.
The camera then winds through the scene with a series of
close ups. In his Drama lesson this week, Mr Pluckrose set
his Year 10 the Mannequin Challenge using the theme of
Macbeth 2017.
Mr Pluckrose said, "They absolutely loved it."
