A film making project, developing emotional intelligence through the lens

Created by Michele Gregson

What did the school want to achieve?

Learners at this school are resourceful, talented and unique. They are able to take responsibility for their learning and respond well to the ‘can do’ culture that is encouraged. For an increasing number of students the Sandwich Technology College is their first choice for secondary education. All choice however is made within the context of a selective system, and the Kent age eleven assessment procedures. The school aims to ensure that every child feels valued and recognises the different but equal opportunities available. The school wanted to develop learners who are confident, reflective and collaborative. The aim of this project was to develop emotional intelligence, using an arts based project to link curriculum areas. The project addressed broad curriculum aims supporting personal development, and covered the Key Concepts underpinning the new Art and Design Programme of Study.
