Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club.
In the upcoming Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend (2-5 June), the Queen will celebrate becoming the first monarch to reign for seventy years.
This is a perfect chance to explore her life and Britain under her rule throughout the years, both of which have been uniquely and extensively captured by archive film. The best place to start is with the above clip* of the Queen's coronation on 2 June 1953. Following that, we've collected a number of resources that can help you use archive film in the classroom and delve into this era of British history:
Activity ideas, guidance and resources to help children and young people plan and complete an engaging documentary film.
A resource to support integration of a wide range of archive film watching and filmmaking into your class or club.
A film guide that looks at Britain on Film (Primary), exploring its key topics and themes through informal discussion.
Last but not least, this fascinating Guardian article from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee gives a good sense of how you can use film more widely during these celebrations.
