Paddington resources for primary schools!

Into Film have created a fun, easy to use resource for Primary teachers based on the charming British adventure film, Paddington. The resource will be available to teachers registering for a new Into Film Club before the Easter break.

Fun activities in the resource support curriculum areas including literacy, geography, art and design, whilst carefully selected clips and images from Paddington enable pupils to explore the film’s themes of individuality and acceptance. This flexible and exciting resource comes in pdf format with supporting PowerPoint.

As well as this comprehensive resource, new Into Film club leaders will receive for free:

  • Access to a huge bank of learning and teaching materials that use film to engage learners across all core curriculum subjects
  • Access to a library of 4,000 DVDs, including Paddington*, to use in class, for after-school clubs, for lunchtime film clubs and more

What do I do next?
Register 
before Friday 20th March to get your free resource for your class and become part of a growing movement of teachers who use film to engage and excite pupils.

Chatterbooks training

ChatterbooksChatterbooks are holding a training day at Exeter Library on Thursday 19 March.  If anyone is interested in attending, they can find out more from the Reading Agency website.  It’s a great way to share ideas for successful Chatterbooks sessions with colleagues, and find out all the ways you can support children taking part.  We are also introducing a section on running inclusive Chatterbooks groups.  Barrington Stoke CEO Mairi Kidd will be attending to talk about books for children with dyslexia, and we will share tips and resources to support children with reading difficulties taking part in Chatterbooks.
 
Participants will also leave with a handbook in a ring binder, and some publisher goodies, to help boost start their Chatterbooks groups!  To book, or for any queries, do contact jenny.warner@readingagency.org.uk
