Short (1-4 activities)

In this lesson, learners will be introduced to the concepts of diegetic and non-diegetic sounds within films. Using a selection of still images and examples from films, learners will think about the range of sounds and music they can hear and be challenged to categorise them into diegetic and non-diegetic sounds. By understanding the differences in the two types of sounds, learners will be able to apply this knowledge to other lessons in this series.

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."
