Our Europe Film Making Project
SEETs popular Our Europe film making project for S3 – S6 pupils has now launched for 2016 – 17! We are delighted to be running this project again and are happy to announce that this year any and all languages will be accepted in entries. The more the better! Pupils are asked to form teams of 4 and come up with a creative idea for a film based around global citizenship, specifically addressing one of the following themes:
• Travel and Leisure (going on holiday, exploring other countries)
• Migration and welcome (refugees, immigration and how people are treated)
• Trade (how businesses work in different countries, importing and exporting)
As always, films must include the use of at least one language other than English. All teams have to do is put their ideas into a storyboard and send them to us by 8th December.
Our Europe is a great way to get pupils engaged with languages in a fun and innovative way. It has a great track record for encouraging languages uptake and building pupils’ confidence, and last year over 95% of participant pupils decided to continue with their language for another year after taking part!
If you have any questions, or would like to arrange for SEET staff to visit your school, please contact the SEET office.
