The Campfire Ghost Story Pack - Whole School Licence
I’ve been saving this story for a long time and I think tonight’s the best night to tell it.
It’s a about illusion and deception...
Submitted for the approval of The Midnight Society, I call this story:
This pack encourages your learners to write and record a ghost story that they can share around the campfire. Using popular animations, such as Alma (a computer-animated dark fantasy film produced by ex-Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas) and Francis (written by novelist & screenwriter Dave Eggars) Both animations use a text-centric approach to support learners with their reading and writing. As Alma is wordless, the accompanying narrative is unique to this pack and will enable you to strengthen and support a range of literacy skills.
This pack is aimed at Upper Key Stages 2 & 3.
This pack includes:
- Comprehension lessons that integrate and develop core reading skills at Word, Sentence and Text Level.
- Writing lessons that encourage collaborative learning and independent creative writing that embeds grammar in a meaningful way and helps learners understand what it mean to be a real writer, one who writes for an authentic purpose and with a particular audience in mind.
- Performance lessons that develop reading fluency and a deeper understanding of their own work and that of others, as well as help improve personal social skills and confidence.
By the end of each Unit of Work, teachers will have written and video evidence of each of their learner's work, work that can be shared with a wider audience and be assessed for moderation and inform future planning.
