Watch the video opposite called 'The Bridge'. There is no talking during the video between the characters and so the viewer is left to work out what is happening throughout by watching the characters' actions. Answer the follow questions to check your understanding. Remember, start every sentence with a capital letter and end each one with a full stop. Use words from the question to start your answer so that you write in full sentences. Try not to start sentences with 'because'.
1. What are the two animals that meet on the bridge at the beginning?
2. Who had the right of way to walk along the bridge first?
3. In your opinion, what should they have done?
4. The bear treats the racoon badly. What does this tell us about the bear?
5. Do you agree with what the rabbit and the raccoon did?
6. When the rabbit and the raccoon first meet, what did you think would happen?
7. Did you like the ending to the film? Why or why not?
Yesterday you watched a short film called 'The Bridge'. The film had no speech in it but we were able to understand what the characters were feeling or thinking by their expressions and actions. Today we would like you to look at the scenes on the worksheet opposite which have been taken from the film. You need to decide what the animals are thinking or saying in each scene. Fill in the speech and thought bubbles and try to be creative with what they could say to each other! You do not need to use speech marks ( "" ) today or 'said' words as you are writing inside speech bubbles.
Yesterday you decided what the characters were saying to each other in the film 'The Bridge'. Today we would like you to turn your comic strip into a playscript. Watch the Presentation opposite first to see what a playscript is. Many of you will have already come across these in your reading books and enjoyed playing the parts of different characters!
Once you have watched the PowerPoint presentation, you will need to use your comic strip from yesterday to begin writing your playscript. You will need to add in stage directions and you might want to add a bit more speech than you used in the comic strip. Your playscript needs to make sense to someone who hasn't seen the film 'The Bridge' so make sure you read it to yourself to make sure you describe what is happening throughout the scene - every action the characters make in the film, should be written as a stage direction in your playscript. You will be able to finish this tomorrow so please don't feel like you have to rush.
Today you will be tested on your spellings from Monday. Good luck!
We would also like you to spend time today finishing your playscript as it was a big task and may have taken you a while. We can't wait to read them!
