From the five great stories the groups created in the last session, we picked out some of the key themes of those stories so that we could concentrate more on what the main theme of our film could be. The three key themes we identified were LONELINESS, BULLYING and PERSEVERANCE. We split into groups and tried to answer some key questions about each of these:
1. What is it?
2. How does it make you feel?
3. Do you know any examples of it happening to you or someone you know?
4. What can you do about it?
After discussing it within their teams, each group then fed back their thoughts and feelings on each of the three subject matters and helped create a master document that could be used to create stories around each of the themes.
