 Writing Activity 1 - The Lighthouse 

Click the picture on the left to watch a short animated film called The Lighthouse. 

What does the lighthouse keeper think about the people outside the window having fun? 
How does the creator build up tension in the film? 
What sort of person do you think the lighthouse keeper is? What are your reasons for this? 


Write a newspaper account of the event in this film.
Include interviews with the lighthouse keeper, villagers and the men from the boat. 



Create a storyboard (like a comic strip) of the key events from the film. 


 Writing Activity 2 - Abandoned places. 

Look at this photograph: 

  • What is this a photo of? 
  • Where is this place? 
  • How did the ship get there?
  • Before she sank, what type of ship was this? 
  • What caused the sinking? What happened to the people onboard? 

Use the questions above (in blue) as prompts to write a story about the abandoned ship. Try to use lots of adjectives to describe the setting and what happened to cause the sinking.

Writing Activity 3 - Brave 

Watch the film trailer by clicking on the picture on the left. 


Write descriptions of the hero, the landscape and the bear. 


Imagine you are the director of the animated Brave film. Write a new voice over for the trailer - make it as exciting as possible. Read it over the trailer so that you know it's long/short enough and that your description, fits with the action.
