The Winning Book Corner


The staff and children have been taking part in a book corner competition. All classes have designed and created their own book corners, based on a story or theme they like. Some amazing book corners have been created and it was very difficult to choose a winner because they are all so fabulous. However, the winner is 5DF!

Congratulations! Your prize will be with you soon.

Write about this film


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUlaseGrkLc

  • The title of this film is ‘Soar’. Can you think of synonyms for this word? Would any of them make a better film title in your opinion?
  • Look at the first frame of the animation. Predict what you think may happen in the rest of the film.
  • Retell the story from the point of view of Mara (the girl) or Lucas (the pilot).
  • Pause the video at different points (e.g. 0:15, 0:28, 0:50, 1:15, 1:44, 2:29, 3:51, 4:35) and think of some speech / thought bubbles for the characters.
  • Pause the video when the small bag lands on the table. Write an alternative ending from this point. What is in the bag? Who does it belong to?
  • Turn the story into a playscript, adding narration, stage directions and speech for the characters.
  • Look at different roles listed in the credits. How would each of these people have contributed to the movie?
  • Create a persuasive poster to advertise this movie.
  • Make a set of instructions to teach others how to make a paper aeroplane.
  • Create an explanation text that teaches others how a plane works.
  • Write a ‘flashback’ scene for this film that tells us more about Lucas and his life.
