Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang (U)
[easyazon-image-link asin="B003Y7R626" alt="Nanny McPhee & the Big Bang ( Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang ) ( Nanny McPhee Returns (Nanny McPhee et le Big Bang) ) ( NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2.4 Import - United Kingdom )" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61X5MGyiakL._SL160_.jpg" align="left" width="115" height="160"] A magical film about a Nanny who comes to the rescue of a family struggling to keep their farm up and running. The father is away at war, the children are not getting along very well, particularly when their two cousins turn up and the mother is trying to run the family, a job and the farm! Nanny McPhee comes along to teach the family some important lessons in the way they live and treat each other.
Scene 3 (approximately 3.5 minutes) and Scene 5 (approximately 5 minutes)
The first clip I have chosen shows the arrival of two cousins from the city who have come to stay with the family on the farm, during the war. These two children are not very polite or well behaved and don’t want anything to do with the family they have come to stay with. The clip shows all the children behaving badly. Before showing the first clip, I would ask the children to make a list in their heads of words that describe the children and the way they are treating each other. For example, proud, mean, unkind, selfish, etc. When they have watched the first clip, ask them to tell you some of the words they thought of to describe the children. Then ask them to decide which children did something ‘wrong’ and what they need to do to correct this wrong. Hopefully, one of the children will give you the answer you are looking for, ie to ‘say sorry’. This leads nicely into the second clip where Nanny McPhee is trying to persuade the children to say sorry to each other, after they have been fighting. With her magic, Nanny McPhee has made it impossible for the children to stop fighting each other and themselves, until they say the words “I’m Sorry”.
After showing the second film clip I would point out to the children how difficult the children in the film found it to say sorry. This may then lead to a discussion about saying sorry, and perhaps you could ask the following questions:
Have you ever said sorry?
Has anyone ever said sorry to you?
Did you accept the apology/was your apology accepted?
How easy or difficult is it to say sorry?
Remind the children that when we are friends with Jesus, it is important that we say sorry to each other when we do things wrong, but also that we say sorry to God.
