Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club
In January, the children of Compass Point Primary School in Bristol and the South West Bristol Co-Operative Learning Trust were treated to a visit from The Tiger Who Came to Tea to launch a very special new animation lesson plan.
The lesson plan, which is based on the new animated adaptation of Judith Kerr's much-loved classic, has been devised by ScreenSkills - the skills charity for the UK's screen industries - and the production company, Lupus Films, which made the TV special that premiered on Channel 4 last Christmas. It is based on the book published by HarperCollins Children's Books.
Commissioned by the ScreenSkills Animation Skills Council with contributions from the animation industry to the Animation Skills Fund, the resource consists of a flexible plan which can be run as a single lesson or a series. It includes teacher notes, a presentation, a project book for the children and additional lessons in maths and science.
Compass Point Primary School was chosen for this very special event as part of Into Film's Club network and run a regular Into Film Club led by parents Simon and Polly. They said of the event:
It was a great opportunity for the children to learn about careers in film and animation through working on this well-known children's animation.Parent and leader of Compass Point Primary Into Film Club, Simon
In a city where there is a growing and recognised film industry it's important for the kids to meet film professionals and realise that this is a sector where they can work in the future. They were also delighted to share the day - and their tea with a fully-grown tiger!Parent and leader of Compass Point Primary Into Film Club, Polly
The lesson plan is available on the ScreenSkills website. It is the first in a new series on careers in the screen industries, created by ScreenSkills in association with Into Film and Arts Council England.
We are teaming up with ScreenSkills on a raft of film industry careers initiatives for primary school pupils.
