The Man on the Moon


“The Man on the Moon” is the heart-warming Christmas TV advert for 2015 from the John Lewis department store in the UK. It tells the story of a young girl called Lily. Looking at the moon through the family telescope one night, she’s amazed at what she finds… a man on the moon.

Lily watches as he goes about his chores, all alone up there. She becomes determined to get something to the moon, to send him a message and show him that someone down here is thinking of him.

Apart from the idea of sharing at Christmas, the video could also stimulate discussion and work in class about thinking of the elderly, especially at this time of the year.

John Lewis has also developed some classroom resources to support the story of ”The Man on the Moon”. These can be downloaded HERE The resources include lesson plans, art activities and activity cards.
