New Lesson Plans
11 Sep

Take a look at our updated lesson plans in Teacher Resources.  The lesson plans provided a step by step guide to any teachers considering a filmmaking project in the classroom, with cross-curricular links, activities, work sheets and everything you need to know about filmmaking from scriptwriting to final edit.  The lesson plans are designed to be used with resources and technology already likely to be found in most primary classrooms.

New lesson plans will continue to be added to our site on a weekly basis over the Autumn 2015 term, so watch this space.
