1 Picturacy Film Narrative and The Primary Framework Julie GreenFilm Education
2 Film and the Primary Framework for Literacy The narrative and non-fiction units within therenewed Framework encompass both paper andon-screen texts and are intended to cover thefull range of texts envisaged within the NationalCurriculum for English.
3 Film and the Primary Framework for Literacy For example;Year 4 Non-fiction - Unit 4Persuasive TextsWatch a trailer for a popular children's film. Discuss howthe soundtrack, sound effects, voice-over and movingimages were used. Demonstrate how to combine words,music and images (to engage an audience).
4 Film and the Primary Framework for Literacy Year 5 Narrative - Unit 5Film NarrativeUse key points in a film to discuss features and themes. Explore approachesmade by the filmmaker to create moods, pace and viewpoint. Developchildren's film language by identifying how colour, light, sound and cameraangles have been used to tell the narrative...Children work as part of a group to use drama strategies to explorecharacters in depth.Develop a storyboard for a narrative by capturing and importing key imagesinto a presentation program. Children write their own version of a narrative,organising writing into paragraphs, and create a multimodal presentation ofthis version including images, voice-over, soundtrack and written text.
5 Learning Objectives linked to Film Narrative Y3: Identify how texts are organised on screenY3: Identify features that writers use to provoke reactions
6 Year 4 Compare the different contributions of music, words and images Explore the use of figurative and expressive language to create images and atmosphereCombine words and images and other features for particular effects
7 Year 5Infer writers’ perspectives from what is written and what is impliedUse a range of ICT programs to present texts, making informed choices of which electronic tools to use for different purposes
8 Year 6Consider the overall impact of a recorded performance, identifying dramatic ways of conveying characters’ ideas and building tensionUnderstand underlying themesIntegrate words, images and sounds imaginatively
9 Assessing Pupil Progress Picturacy™ gives opportunities for assessment by revisiting a genre in literacy through film workUsing the resource as a stimulus provides firm evidence of independence and consistency in pupil attainment without the teacher scaffolding given assessment focus points
10 For example: APP in Writing and Film Narrative Primary Framework strands and Assessment Focuses:Strand 9 – AFs1, 2 & 7: dealing with aspects of composition and effectStrand 10 – Afs 3 & 4: dealing with aspects of structure and organisationStrand 11: Afs 5 & 6: dealing with aspects of sentence work and punctution
11 Word - sentence - text (Literacy) Shot - sequence - text (Picturacy) ‘The places here were laid with gold, not silver, and the 14 seats were not oak benches but mahogany chairs with velvet cushions.’The Northern Lights, Philip Pullman
12 Actively reading filmImproves reading and enjoyment of all textsKnowledge and understanding of filmmaking so pupils can develop skills as filmmakers
13 From screen to pageDeeper understanding of genre, narrative, character, audience…Allows comparison of composition and effect in film and writing

20 Task /25 minsYou are going to tell your own version of a scene’s narrative.Choose 12 key images from the clip ‘First time I had ever seen a fox so close’ (The Fox and the Child, Jacquet 2007). Pause the video at each chosen moment and create a screen grab. This is harder than you think!Sequence your screen grabs into a storyboard. Empty the screen grab bank of any images you don’t needUse the first image with Bubbles to add speech and/or thoughts as well a text box with a couple of sentences. Use punctuation with speech and powerful verbs and adverbs in text boxes. Create a new screen grab of the finished image.Repeat 3 for each image in turn and create a new storyboard from your screen grab bankEach pair read another pair’s finished work.
21 Task 2 - 40/45 mins Meanwhile… You play the parents (or aunts/uncles) of the child. Youare discussing her behaviour at home, one of you thinks her relationship with the fox is a positive thing, the other is worried that she is becoming obsessed and that humans cannot form relationships with wild animals. The discussion turns into an argument which is brought abruptly to an end when you see the girl coming towards the house in the distance. She is covered in blood…
22 Task 2 With your narrative you need to: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the different shot types and their effect.Establish character visually and by using speech and thought bubblesUse text boxes to add a sentence or two to accompany each frame. Use time connectives, powerful verbs and adverbs etc.
23 Task 2 - 45 mins Pairs into fours Plan - sketch a storyboard. 12 frames max (10 mins)Off to take photos. Back in 15 minsBack into pairsImport photos onto laptops and then into PicturacyAdd bubbles, text boxes, adjust light and colour etc.Make screen grabs of each final imageSequence in a storyboardPairs swap laptops to read the others’ narrative.
