Cineclub’s brand new Lightbulb Days are designed to engage a whole year group with film activities. Focusing on a theme, subject area or key text chosen by the school, the activities combine filmmaking and analysis to switch students on to specific aspects of the curriculum by getting them excited about learning. This project is ideal as an end of term challenge or for linking up work with a national celebration or awareness day.
Each Lightbulb day kicks off with a presentation to the whole year group delivered by two of Cineclub’s professional filmmakers. This session includes games and introductory activities to provide students with inspiration for their work. The Cineclub team will then spend one lesson with each class enabling them to engage in practical film activities.
Whilst our filmmakers rotate around each of the class groups, the rest of the year group are guided by their teachers through complimentary activities, designed and resourced by Cineclub. The day culminates with the whole year coming back together to screen, review and discuss their work. Each school will be sent session plans and resources in advance for teachers delivering the supporting lessons. Lightbulb days are designed for 3 form groups (90 to 100 students).
