Film Review template

Thursday 14.5.20


For the rest of the week you will be pleased to hear that we will be focusing on film reviews! Your challenge today is to watch a film. While you are watching this film, we would make notes on the following: 

What happens/plot? 

Main characters/actors/actresses
What do you like about it? 

What don't you like about it? 

Would you recommend this film to someone else? 


For an extra challenge we would like to write a brief synopsis of the story. An example can now be found below from the film Shrek: 


A mean lord exiles fairytale creatures to the swamp of a grumpy ogre, who must go on a quest and rescue a princess for the lord in order to get his land back.


The deadline for this film review is Tuesday 19th May. However, if it takes you longer, that is absolutely fine!



Here is a toolkit for you to follow when writing your film review:


Film Review 



- Introduction: Film name, your opinion 

- Synopsis - don't give anything away! 

- Characters 

- Strengths 

- Weaknesses 

- Conclusion - summarise and gives a recommendation 



- Powerful opinion adjectives- Incredible

- Alliteration 








Hello all! We hope you are all well and continue to stay safe during the coming weeks. The more we stay inside and stay safe, the sooner we will be allowed to return back to the classroom! 


Mr. Hunter and I have received a few biographies from last week but realise that people may need longer to complete these. We are therefore extending this deadline to Wednesday 13th of May. Please make sure the work is your own and it is not copy and pasted from the internet as this is plagiarism. 


Alongside this report we want to do some further work on complex sentences as this really helps take your work to the next level. We will spend a few days focusing on using this in our writing to make it more interesting and professional.


If the explanation for how to use these is not clear on the document, hopefully this will help.


Subordinating clause- This adds to the main clause and does not make sense by itself.


Main Clause- This makes sense by itself and can be a simple sentence without the subordinating clause.




Turning towards its prey, the wolf howled.


Here the words "the wolf howled" makes sense as a sentence of its own. This makes it the main clause. The subordinating clause of "Turning towards its prey" adds to the main clause to give you more information. The subordinating clause does not make sense by itself and would not be a complete sentence.





You do not need to write a sentence for each picture. You can pick a few 7-10 and write sentences with super vocab!




Please complete complex sentences about the other pictures left on the document.
