UP (Short Stories with Flashbacks) can be used as a stand-alone unit to examine the technique of flashbacks or as an extension to a unit on film narrative structure. The animations need to be viewed several times before the lessons to support children in identifying the key themes and in considering personal responses.

It is highly recommended that teachers use the DVD of the film which will offer further opportunities to explore the rest of the story and use the associated short clips that come with it. However, for this unit of work, the relevant clips can be viewed via links on the PPT presentation.

UP is a complete unit of work (PowerPoint, worksheets and teacher notes). Lessons follow the Phase 1, 2 and 3 teaching sequence and cover the related core learning objectives.

Contents include:

Talk for writing - hotseating characters.

Exploring character - Carl and Ellie's diary entries.

Role on the wall activity.

Create an adventure book.

Feelings graph.

Mind mapping task.

Individual, pair and group work.
