Video Synopsis of "Boy in a Striped Pyjamas" Produced By a Student.

Added: 27 May 2016 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Guide/notes / Audio / Video

A really nice video produced by a student about the "Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". The student approach to drawings, illustrations and voice over will connect with your pupils mind-set in explaining this heart-warning story. The student cleverly depicts the themes, plot, quotes, characters, and symbolism using the way in which it appears to him.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Oral Language

Suggestions for use: Can your students create a movie-clip like this one? The challenge is on....First, allow your pupils to watch this video produced by a pupil to set your expectations. Divide the class into mini groups, each with specific roles (recorder, timer, voice over, picture organiser, drawer...) Time will be needed to produce these illustrations. Allow time for your pupils to video their clips and voice overs. Plenary: Movie time: watch your pupils clips together whereby pupils provide feedback on "what went well" and "even better if" (WWW / EBI)
