6th Form English groups started Film club this week. We have signed up to Into Film that offers thousands of films and resources that helps to engage students of all abilities for free. It helps particularly with communication, literacy and social skills as well as being extremely fun. The inclusive nature of the club will lead to greater social cohesion and confidence. Students will be watching an extract from a movie each week and will write a review that will be uploaded onto the Into Film website with opportunities to win prizes. The areas the students focus on are characters, camera, colours, setting, sound and story. The students discuss these areas and how they helped to tell the story and in small mixed ability groups wrote short reviews to be read by others.
This week’s film was ‘Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ which was a popular choice with most reviews receiving 4-5 stars. Next week students get the chance to win a DVD for the student who displays the best engagement.
