As the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation continues across the UK, we recognise that schools across the nation are under varying levels of government restrictions, with some year groups working from home, and some schools closed entirely. We recognise that many parents will be looking for ways to keep their children meaningfully occupied outside of school time.

Filmmaking at home is a great way to keep your children entertained whilst also being a creative way to learn. Whether you have a camera, a tablet or a mobile phone, it's never been easier to make a film with minimal resources, and we have some great tips and tricks to help you and your children or students make their short animations or live action films.

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."
