Key Stage One Film Literacy
Our second training day for our key stage one film literacy project started with Philip Webb. developing a ‘pop up working wall’ to plan a teaching sequence based on the Heffalump Movie.
We then looked at how we can use the Book Creator app to build a short story using specified camera shots. If you save a master template online to Google Drive you can then download the file onto each iPad. Children then have a structured book they can use as the starting point for their own book. You can see some of the template examples below. This helps children construct sentences with some support. They also have to use the camera to film each shot and record themselves reading the sentence using the ‘add sound’ facility. Children have already been taught about different camera shots and made their own short films on our pupil training day.
You can see a very short example made by teachers on our training. This was the most sensible one we managed to make!
