3Cs and 3Ss dice and card




Short (1-4 activities)


England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales

The 3Cs (colour, camera, character) and the 3Ss, (story, setting, sound) can be used to help students discuss and analyse all the elements of a film text. Working with the 3Cs and 3Ss enables students to make connections between the features of all texts, and develop their decoding, encoding, reading and writing skills.
After viewing a film sequence, just roll the dice and ask your students one of the corresponding questions. Students can become skilled at leading this activity for themselves as a starter activity or plenary for film text analysis.
