Mindfulness Through Film

Mindfulness Through Film

(7)
This resource launches to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 May 2017) and has been produced in partnership with Mental Health Foundation. Half of all mental health problems start before the age of 14, and so addressing mental health concerns has never been more at the forefront of the minds of the government, the media and the education sector. Teachers now play a vital role in strengthening the mental health of their young people, but are often not sure how to incorporate this topic into an already jam-packed teaching timetable. Mindfulness Through Film guides teachers and their learners through a series of popular mindfulness activities, such as raising sensory awareness, mindful colouring and walking. It has at its heart a collection of clips from feature and youth-made films, and culminates in a simple filmmaking task. The resource has been developed for young people approaching changing or challenging circumstances, such as exams and transitioning from primary to secondary school, but is suitable across Key Stages 2 and 3, and Second, Third and Fourth Level. The activities link to PSHE curricula and provide an introduction to mindfulness. Not yet Into Film? Start your free Into Film Club at www.intofilm.org/clubs

This inspirational, free educational resource uses the brand new film A United Kingdom, released in cinemas on 25th November, to help young people, aged 11-18, discover the power that unity has to transform societies and shape British values.

This flexible resource, which supports the PSHE/LLW/PSE/Health & Wellbeing and History curricula, as well as SMSC education, will immerse students in the post-war period of the British Empire in Africa, while bringing into focus the contemporary relevance of the story. They will build empathy with the film's key characters, discover what shaped their views and actions, and reflect on how British values have developed to include tolerance and respect for cultural diversity and interracial relationships. The programme will empower students to become unity ambassadors, promoting tolerance and respect for others in their own schools and communities. They will be encouraged to create and share a statement about why they think unity is powerful or examples of when they've seen unity conquer difference on a unity message board in school and via social media for the chance to win great prizes.
