Today’s spark (24/03/2020, by popular demand for “robots”!) is Disney’s film Big Hero 6. It is a 3D computer animated film, loosely based on the superhero team of the same name by Marvel Comics. The film tells the story of Hiro Hamada, a young robotics prodigy who forms a superhero team to combat a masked villain.
The idea is to provide a film and linked learning materials for use at home. Several parents have noted they have played the film at a quiet time (after lunch) to help them get some things done and give children a break, before launching into the activities and conversations after.
