Participants will be introduced to a series of tools to help their learners contextualise and decode film, learning key literacy skills such as inference, deduction and analysis that can be applied to film and other texts.

The session includes practical writing activities linked to sound, character, camera and story, while introducing the idea of filmmaking.

Each activity is designed to help build on a learner's comprehension, analytical and writing skills and includes an opportunity for curriculum-focused filmmaking and extended writing.

Each participant will receive a free downloadable PowerPoint presentation that can be adapted for students, as well a prompt dice and question sheet to support classroom activities.

All materials for this session were created in collaboration with the BFI, Bradford Media Literacy, the Northern Ireland Creative Learning Centres, NATE and our network of specialist practitioners.

"Absolutely loved it. Did not realise how engaging it would be and how accessible it is for kids." - Robert Hughes, Teacher
