Expressing yourself and your ideas is a fundamental part of the human experience starting from cave drawings created by early man to the blogging and vlogging content that is part of today's digital culture.

This resource was produced in partnership with Scottish Book Trust and is designed to support young people aged 7 and over to create filmed responses in line with the required evidence for Reading Schools and the First Minister's Reading Challenge (FMRC).

The resource is presented to you in two parts. Part 1 covers 3 activity sections including Vlog Review, Drawn Review and Book Trailer that are designed to help evidence an individual learners' reading journey. Part 2 includes Stop Motion Animation and 5,4,3,2,1 filmmaking.

The skills developed will help learners to express themselves effectively on camera and can be used to demonstrate their learning across the curriculum areas and to offer an alternative method of presenting their learning beyond the written form.

This resource is also associated with Book Week Scotland (November), The First Minister's Reading Challenge (September - June) and the Reading Schools accreditation programme.

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

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
