    I'm collecting resources and ideas for a cross curricular unit next term with my Yr 5/6's on Hugo Cabret. Has anyone come across anything they have found useful or activities that they have used that have worked especially well? I'm thinking of including silent movies, animations, automatons, film reviews, visual literacy, Author reviews, there is so much to cover I might just spend the whole term on it!

    Have you thought about linking your music lessons to the topic?
    Clockwork rhythms - chiming sounds. Different music for different sized clocks ( a slow tick for a big station clock - much faster tick for a bedside alarm clock) - graphic scores.
    Or you could look at the music of clockwork music boxes as inspiration.
    'Classical' music links to clocks that you might find useful here:

    Oh, good one, I hadn't thought about music too ( you do realise I might have to extend this over two terms [​IMG])

    Two terms? Why? Am I missing something?

    NO! I just think it's a fantastic book and should keep us very busy!
