Bonnie Tyler, One Direction and the cast of Pitch Perfect can all work collectively to alleviate your tension.

1:30 – 3:00 – Film story scaffolds

Films tell a story: in this session Rob will demonstrate how the stories told in films can be used as scaffolds to help students create their own narratives. Rob will explain how films can be broken down into scenes and shots and what role each of these has within the narrative.

Following that, Mitch will explore how writing tasks can be differentiated to support lower ability pupils whilst also stretching the high flyers!
