I saw this earlier and thought it looked amazing. Then I was tweeted by Mr Young (@mrysgc) on Twitter that he is going to use it with his Year 6 class this week.
There are some stunning settings shots in the opening sequence. Which the pupils can describe.
They can describe walking towards the castle in the snow and how they would feel as they approach the castle, before going inside and seeing the cobwebbed interior.
There are some discussion points to talk about with the pupils, such as who is the girl? Who is speaking? Who owns the castle? 'What if she is the one?' What does that mean?
My Young is going to pause the film at 1 minute 6 seconds and ask the children to carry on the story. This is a great idea, especially if they do not know that it is Beauty and The Beast. Most children will not have seen the trailer, the only clues are the 'Be Our Guest' titles and the piano music playing at the end.
We would love to hear about how you think this could be used too, so leave us a comment.

I used it to teach story setting with a P5/6/7. We watched it a few times and discussed possible locations for the castle. We then used our senses to describe : see, hear, touch, feel. We discussed how the setting is enhanced by the music and the way it is revealed in glimpses.
