This morning we attended the final day of the 3-week-long ‘Into Film Festival’, which is a nationwide event for showcasing the best of film and cinema to children. The film had many different themes running through it but it was all based around life on the International Space Station. Prior to the film starting there was a Question and Answer session from a lady who worked in telecommunications for the British Space Agency; the pupils from our class asked some great questions! There were so many positive learning points that the children talked about afterwards too, which included: the amazing amount of light pollution between capital cities and international borders such as North and South Korea; the visible effects of deforestation; the case for once Mars being a place where life could have existed; the challenges of completing a spacewalk; seeing different weather patterns from space; a huge amount of environmental issues and we even learnt about washing your hair in space!
It was a fantastic morning that hopefully inspired lots of our children in many different ways from film making to considering a career in the space industry.
What did you find most fascinating about the whole film experience?
