Introduction Whole Class * Sound and Image activity with a selection of the C’s and S’s of film: Children use prompt question cards (Setting –place; Setting- Time; Story; Character) and listen to the first 2 minutes of the film without visuals (up to the point where Rover – the dog – enters the beggar woman’s house). Discuss the children’s perceptions/ideas based on the soundtrack. * Inference & Deduction: 1. Before children watch the film, show them pictures of the beggar woman and the master. In talking partners, discuss: Who are these characters? What do you think they are like? What words can be used to describe them? On mini- whiteboards, list adjectives/adjectival phrases to describe what you think they are like. Take feedback onto the IWB. 2. Introduce the term mise en scene. Look at 2 external and 2 internal pictures from the film. (The master’s house and street; the beggar’s house and street). How are these contrasted? What can we tell from the composition of these shots? * Watch the film – pausing when the nanny returns to the house. What has happened? What is the dilemma? What do they predict will happen in the end? How accurate were the children’s initial thoughts from the sound & image activity? Shared Writing Remind children of the structure of a narrative – OBDER – by using the VAK arm movements. Show the children a story map of the main parts of the film narrative. With the dilemma pre-written, work with the children to write the introduction of the story using TfW (talk for writing) strategies.
