LC- To understand how authors develop character and setting.


Watch the film extract below and then the same extracts in the book. While you are doing that, compare the 2 sources of information. Think what is the same about them and what is different. Think back to the work we did on film, for example the use of lighting and sound that can't be done in the text version. How does the author portray these ideas instead?

Look at the facial expressions of the characters in the film that show their feelings. How does the author do this instead?


 You may need to watch or read parts more than once but I suggest you watch the film extract all the way through first and then go back to the parts you need.


When you have done this, write your comparison in your book. You can do this in the way you feel most confident. If you aren't sure you can write two subheadings - 'Similarities' ' Differences' and put your ideas underneath. It would be good to be more creative though. However, remember you are in year 6 and the standard of work needs to be of a year 6 standard. Good luck.

Watch the following film extract until 13 minutes and 23 seconds.
