Lily and the Snowman

Lily and the Snowman is a short animated film from Cineplex Movies from 2015. It tells the story of how, every winter, a magical snowman puts on a show for a little girl. But over time, life pulls them apart. Will she remember to take the time for what she loved?

There is a touching relationship between the little girl and the snowman which develops over time. However, life intervenes, Lily grows up and forgets about the snowman. As an adult, she revisits the relationship and introduces her own daughter to the snowman which rekindles the friendship once again.

This video could act as a great stimulus for oral work and writing in the classroom during the seasonal period.

Rob Smith from the Literacy Shed has suggested some activities that could be completed by pupils, using the video as an inspiration HERE
