Film Club runs after school on a Monday, 3:15 until 5:00. It gives children an opportunity to experience a variety of films from different genres, in a relaxed environment. Children are also encouraged to write a review, which helps them think about certain aspects of the film, such as the sound track, characters, plot and animation. All children who attend the club will become a member of IntoFilm - the organisation that provides the films and runs competitions for the club.
Another aspect of the club is Film Making. As we are a member of IntoFilm, the organisation provides opportunities for schools to attend a film making event. During this event, a select number of children will be chosen to make a short film; maybe an animation or a Stop Motion film. This opportunity allows children to develop their confidence and build on skills that they have learnt in the classroom, such as literacy and communication.
Film Club continues to run on a Monday night and as always is popular in attendance. We have watched a variety of films and each week children are keen to find out what we are watching in the coming weeks.
Recently we had the pleasure of attending the Into Film Festival whereby KS1 and KS2 received a free cinema visit. The school attended on Thursday 23rd November to watch the U rated film, Lego Batman. The children enjoyed this film, regardless of whether they had seen it before and could be heard discussing the film once back in school.
What a Bat fun way to start the run up to Christmas!
