This Let’s Think in English lesson develops pupils understanding of symbolism through an animated film called: “The Clocktower” by Cara Antonelli. Pupils consider how the girl is feeling in the opening of the film before exploring the symbolism of the film by discussing why the world turns grey and the music suddenly stops and what the girl might do with the balloon. This leads to a consideration of the character’s happiness before the class considers the concept of sacrifice.
