PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a SMARTBoard presentation (including worksheet) for a lesson I delivered that was graded outstanding. I have taught this lesson to Year 6/grade 5 pupils (where it was extended into two lessons) and also to Year 8/grade 7 as part of a drama lesson.

The lesson explores the art of slapstick and physical comedy. To start, the children play a game of rumours, exploring the idea of changing a rumour very slightly through Chinese whispers each time it is passed on and then seeing how crazy and ridiculous this rumour can become (focusing on expression and emotion as the rumour is being spread.)

The children will also watch a clip from Fawlty Towers and try to identify examples of the features of slapstick comedy and make notes of these example on their worksheet. The children then work independently (in pairs) on laptops to research their own slapstick comedy clip and go onto identify further features of slapstick comedy. This can then generate ideas for the children to work in small groups creating their own slapstick scenarios using success criteria of slapstick comedy features.

(Ideas for comedy clips for children to look up - Abbot and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Fawlty Towers, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Four Marx Brothers, Three Stooges, Tom and Jerry.) Clips are freely available on YouTube and are very easy to locate.
