What our teachers say

"The film texts motivate and engage all types of learners. As a result, the ‘give it a go’ approach has never been more evident in my class as they feel more confident expressing their ideas and opinions in a creative manner. This powerful tool has enabled every child in my P6 class to achieve success in literacy."
