Our Story Builder resource is aimed at pupils aged 7-11, and enables learners to develop their understanding of the basic building blocks of film - the 3Cs and 3Ss of colour, character, camera, and story, sound and setting - to create imaginative narratives of their own. They will be able to use our interactive workbook to plan their own films stage by stage.
Each fun and accessible element of the resource can be used as a stand-alone activity, or combined, so that learners can plan or make a film composed entirely of their own ideas. The resource allows pupils to work alone or collaboratively to develop characters, build their story arc, decide on settings and even design their very own film posters.
To celebrate this new resource, we have a limited number of printed A3 Story Builder packs available exclusively for schools in Northern Ireland. Each pack contains Story Builder worksheets for up to 30 pupils. Packs are limited and will be distributed while supplies last, with priority given to NI Extended Schools.
Story Builder engages with the curriculum seamlessly, harnessing the unlimited creative talent of young people. There are countless stories in the world, all waiting to be told - help your pupils tell theirs.
