Picturacy microsite


Picturacy is Film Education’s series of interactive resources for film and visual literacy in primary schools.  Designed with interactive whiteboards in mind and multiple computers across a school network, without any extra charge for a site license.

The resources feature a range of clips from popular children’s films.  The easy-to-use tools allow teachers and pupils to interactively analyse the moving image and combine images, music and text to create multimedia texts.

The accompanying teachers’ notes link directly to the Primary Framework for Literacy.  As well as helping to raise standards in reading and writing, Picturacy provides opportunities for cross-curricular links including ICT, Music and Art.

Picturacy is suitable for Key Stage 2.
