Buster the Boxer

“Buster the Boxer” is the much anticipated Christmas TV advert for 2016 from the John Lewis department store in the UK. It tells the story of a little girl called Bridget who loves to bounce. When her mum and dad buy her a trampoline for Christmas, they soon discover that she isn’t the only one with a passion for jumping.

Against the soundtrack of “One Day I’ll Fly Away”, Buster looks on as two foxes, a badger, a hedgehog and a squirrel enjoy bouncing on the trampoline.

The video could stimulate discussion and work in class about thinking of wildlife, especially during the winter months.

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

Rob Smith from the Literacy Shed has also suggested some other activities that could be completed by pupils, using the video as an inspiration, in this Facebook Post.
