Primary schools around the UK are finding that it can make concepts such as narrative structure, character and viewpoint accessible to all pupils, even those who struggle with reading and writing.
On this course, we will look at
- how understanding the visual language of film can transfer to richer and more detailed use of description in writing
- how to use film images and soundtracks to improve children’s use of inference and deduction
- using film stills, sequences and soundtracks as the basis for structured speaking and listening and to develop understanding of narrative
- simple ways of using filmmaking to improve literacy
The activities presented will be based on our own 20-year experience of delivering film education in Wales, and on practice in schools in other parts of the UK.
This course is only £250 a day for bookings made before 31st March 2013. (Courses must be completed by the end of May 2013). A limited number of courses are available at this rate.
All participating schools will receive
- a bilingual course booklet covering these teaching techniques and suggesting film and other resources to use
- a free school site licence for our new interactive DVD-ROM Making movies make sense: using film with children and young people, or 10 licences for the iPad version.
Only a limited number of sessions are available at these special subsidised rates, so early booking is advised.
We can also offer a range of training, courses and activities for Secondary schools.
