This is based on the amazing '5 metres 80' film directed by Nicolas Deveaux about high-diving giraffes which is available on Literacy Shed and Youtube. I have included all my plans, resources, success criteria etc. The lesson was judged as outstanding following my last observation. It focuses on varying sentence length for effect but also includes scope for other creative writing techniques. Read the main text through with the class before showing the film and keep the giraffes as a surprise! The children loved the film and wrote some amazing pieces. Hope you enjoy it!
