Callimg all year 6 teacher

Discussion in 'Primary' started by callum97, Aug 28, 2011.

  1. So I am planning for the theme 'Fiction accompanied by its adaptation for film or TV'.
    I was wondering if any teacers had any titles which children especially loved and enjoyed. I had suggestions but the dvds were all pg. Is it only u we can show?

    Thanks for any help

    Goodnight, Mister Tom?
    The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe?
    Harry Potter?
    Lemony Snickett?
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?
    If you wish to show a PG film, send a letter home to parents to ask permission. I'd imagine very few Year 6 parents would object. Many of the parents of my Year 6s buy their children 18 rated games and films anyway!
  3. Ahh brilliant. I wasnt sure whether you could send a letter home but that would solve some problems, not many films are u's that are suitable for the topic.
    The previous teacher did Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but I imagined most children would be aware of this topic. Although a very fun and interesting book.
    Harry Potter is a bit long for the time limit I have and Narnia is a topic for after Christmas.
    Thanks very much for your ideas

    Stormbreaker - Anthony Horowitz
  6. Yes Stormbreaker was a suggested text from the county.
    Not familiar with the story so need to read to before I plan

    When you send the letter home, word it such that it is a "If you have any concerns then please contact your child's class teacher" rather than asking for approval slips. No-one ever bothers to complain, but many would not bother to send back a slip.
