Good morning everyone,

Another glorious day! Hope you get out in the sunshine today.

Final activities for Film Week!

This week we have been watching films (of your choice) and completing various activities (please see previous posts if you have missed them and want to catch up).

Today we are going to think about the conflict or problem in the film and the solution. Try one or more of the following activities:

Conflict and Solution:

  • Tell an adult about the conflict or problem in the film. What happens? How does this problem get sorted out?
  • Draw some pictures to show the problem and how it is fixed or sorted out (you could do a before and after picture).
  • Draw some pictures to show the problem and how it is fixed or sorted out – label your drawings.
  • Write a few sentences (or more if you can manage) about the conflict or problem in the film. What happens? Why does this happen? How does this problem get solved?
  • Write three short paragraphs about the conflict and solution in the film:
    1. What is the conflict or problem? Why does it occur?
    2. What is the solution to the problem?
    3. How do you feel about the solution? Would you prefer a different solution? Are you happy about the ending? Why or why not?

Good luck!

Good morning everyone,

What lovely weather!

I hope you are enjoying Film Week!

You can choose a different film today and continue with the activities in yesterday’s post, or if you prefer, you can choose one or more of the following:

Setting (place in the film):

  • Tell an adult about the setting of the film e.g. where is it set? What does it look like? What time of day is it? What is the weather like?
  • Draw some pictures to show the setting of the film.
  • Draw some pictures to show the setting of the film and label them.
  • Write a few sentences about the setting of the film e.g. where is it set? What does it look like? What time of day is it? What is the weather like?
  • Write two paragraphs about the setting of the film, including:
  1. Where is the film set? What does it look like? What time of day is it? What is the weather like?

2. How does the setting affect the characters? How does it create atmosphere and mood?               How does the setting make the audience feel? Think about how you feel.

Good luck!
