Ages 10+ years
In this class, we will be analysing a novel and/or film – Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. The novel is readily available through libraries, book shops, kindle or costs about $8 to buy through Book Depository. The film is available on Netflix, video shops or free on YouTube. Ideally, students will read the novel and watch the film in order to compare and contrast the two, however if a student is not able to read the novel, watching the film will suffice.
In this class, we will be doing a series of activities designed to investigate the book and film, exploring the themes, plot, characters, structure, literary techniques and messages. In addition to writing tasks, we will also work through discussion, group activities and some hands-on fun too. Join us for a literary adventure that journeys through a range of engaging topics and teaches the foundational skills of English Literature.
