Throughout this term, Year 5 have been working on a project based on Charlie Chaplin. They began by researching his background – his life and career, and soon progressed to watching the different short films Chaplin starred in, in an attempt to understand his work more thoroughly. In groups, the students looked at picture freeze frames taken from these films, to which each group began developing their own story based around the freeze frame they had chosen. Subsequently, in small groups of three, the children then took the research they had accumulated to create their own short story in a similar style of that of Charlie Chaplin. Below is the short video of their completed work.
