Experiences and Outcomes

Using moving image in a range of classroom activities can contribute to wide learning in the curriculum and deliver many Experiences and Outcomes.

Below is a list - by no means exhaustive - of some of the experiences and outcomes you can help deliver through work with moving image texts.


Literacy and English

  • I engage with and create a wide range of texts in different media.
  • I extend and enrich my vocabulary through listening, talking, watching and reading.
  • I regularly select and listen to or watch texts which I enjoy and find interesting.
  • I can show my understanding of what I listen to or watch by giving detailed, evaluative comments, with evidence, about the content and form of short and extended texts.
  • To help me develop an informed view, I can identify some of the techniques used to influence or persuade.
  • I enjoy creating texts of my choice and I am developing my own style. I can regularly select subject, purpose, format and resources to suit the needs of my audience.
  • I can share my thoughts about structure, characters and/or setting.
  • I can communicate in a clear, expressive manner when engaging with others within and beyond my place of learning, and can independently select and organise appropriate resources as required (this may include images, objects, audio, visual or digital resources).
  • As I listen or watch, I am learning to make notes under given headings and use these to understand what I have listened to or watched and create new texts.

Modern Languages

  • I develop and extend my literacy skills when I have opportunities to engage with and create a wide range of texts in different media.
  • I develop and extend my literacy skills when I have opportunities to extend and enrich my vocabulary through listening, talking, watching and reading.
  • Awareness of social, cultural and geographical aspects of the countries where a particular language is spoken.
  • Learning through the languages area of the curriculum enables children and young people to use different media effectively for learning and communication.
  • I enhance my understanding and enjoyment of other cultures and of my own and gain insights into other ways of thinking and other views of the world.
  • I explore how gesture, expression and emphasis are used to help understanding.

Social Studies

  • Develop an understanding of the history, heritage and culture of Scotland. Explore and evaluate different types of sources and evidence.
  • Presentation skills - oral, written, multimedia.
  • I can make a personal link to the past by exploring items or images connected with important individuals or special events in my life.
  • By exploring places, investigating artefacts and locating them in time, I have developed an awareness of the ways we remember and preserve Scotland’s history.
  • I can interpret historical evidence from a range of periods to help to build a picture of Scotland’s heritage and my sense of chronology.
  • I can use evidence to recreate the story of a place or individual of local historical interest.
  • I can compare and contrast a society in the past with my own and contribute to a discussion of the similarities and differences.
  • I can evaluate the changes which have taken place in an industry in Scotland’s past and can debate their impact.
  • I have explored how people lived in the past.
  • I can compare aspects of people’s daily lives in the past with my own by using historical evidence.
  • I have experimented with imaginative ways such as modelling and drawing, to represent the world around me, the journeys I make and the different ways I can travel.
  • By comparing the lifestyle and culture of citizens in another country with those of Scotland, I can discuss the similarities and differences.

Expressive Arts

  • Moving image media provide opportunities to explore dance, drama, music, art and design within another narrative medium and to combine these traditional expressive arts in filmmaking work.
  • Inspired by a range of stimuli, I can express my ideas, thoughts and feelings through creative work.
  • I have the opportunity to choose and explore an extended range of media and technologies to create images and objects, comparing and combining them for specific tasks.

Mathematics, Sciences and Technologies

  • I have had fun creating a range of symmetrical pictures and patterns using a range of media.
  • I enjoy investigating objects and shapes and can sort, describe and be creative with them. Learners can present their findings in writing, orally or visually using a variety of media. Children and young people develop as scientifically literate citizens with a lifelong interest in science by being able to read and understand essential points from sources of information including media reports.
  • Learners can reflect upon and critically evaluate media portrayal of scientific findings.
  • I can talk about science stories to develop my understanding of science and the world around me.
  • By recording and analysing sound signals, I can describe how they can be manipulated and used in sound engineering.
  • By exploring reflections, the formation of shadows and the mixing of coloured lights, I can use my knowledge of the properties of light to show how it can be used in a creative way.
  • By exploring the refraction of light when passed through different materials, lenses and prisms, I can explain how light can be used in a variety of applications.
