Today you are going to be introduced to some more small people via film.
Find out all about the Borrowers in The Borrowers Trailer:
Talk about what you know about the Borrowers from this clip. Now watch and enjoy this television adaptation of a Borrower’s adventure Pod’s Adventure – The Borrowers – BBC One :
Watch again and, this time, pause at these key moments in the clip: 0:53 mins, 1:08 mins, 1:20 mins, 1:41 mins, 2:06 mins, 3:01 mins, 3:43 mins. Each time you pause, discuss what you have learnt about the borrower and how you might describe him. Create an information poster of everything a borrower needs to be or be able to do. E.g. A BORROWER MUST BE … − small (or one of your words from your poster on day one) − not afraid of heights! − incredibly strong − brilliant at hiding − as quiet as a mouse! etc. Feel free to add as many features to your list as possible! You can use both clips to refer to for ideas. Use colour and enlarged lettering to make your poster as attractive as possible.
