Making films encourages children to
talk, write and plan, It helps them to explore their
imaginations. They have to think about expressing relationships,
emotions and stories through words and pictures. Before making the
films the children design storyboards to show on paper what happens
and when. The enjoyment that the children get from making
films has helped to make them more interested in exploring and
understanding other stories.
