Her nine-year-old son Jason Kay is now terrified of having a shower on his own and has become afraid of the dark, she said.Because..?
… the class at Eastfield Primary School was played the clip from the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock movie, including the dramatic music leading up to character Marion Crane being stabbed to death and her screams, earlier this week.
The school in Anlaby Road, west Hull, insisted the purpose of the lesson was to "establish mood created by music".But that doesn’t appease the fearsome Mrs Kay. Not one little bit…
"He now feels he has to take his plastic sword and knife with him every time he takes a shower or goes to the toilet.
"He is always asking an adult to guard the door while he does whatever he has to do in the bathroom.
"This has had a massive impact on the way he thinks and I am furious with the school."I’m, frankly, amazed that you think this story isn’t going to get the poor little chap bullied into the middle of next week!
"I don't mind admitting that I get a bit scared when I hear or see any type of murder scene, so it is no wonder Jason is so frightened – he is nine years old."Philip Larkin was right, wasn’t he?
