This educational resource develops literacy skills by exploring how stories are told through film. Activities cover sound, setting, character, camera, colour and story, allowing pupils to develop skills of empathy and critical analysis by using film as a text. The short film used in this resource is Miss Todd from the Into Film Shorts: Primary 2014 Collection available exclusively from Into Film.

Use the activities in this teachers' pack and the supporting Literacy through film: Miss Todd PowerPoint presentation. You can work through the subsequent activities in order, or cherry-pick those that suit your class and your schedule.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
