The Into Film Storymaker is an interactive literacy-focused iPad app, designed with both independent and adult-led work in mind.

The app features key scenes from The Gruffalo film and is supported by an extensive teaching resource which can be downloaded below. The resource contains cross-curricular activities, film clips from the animation, printable activity sheets and technical guidance to support most effective use of the app in the classroom. It is ideally placed for use within lower primary age settings and supports storytelling, decoding and inference skills and language learning. Using the app, pupils are able to record their voices over the top of key moments from The Gruffalo film, and choose soundtracks and sound effects to enhance the mood of the scene.

The app is available to download now for free from the App Store and can only be used by Into Film Club Leaders.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
