There are FREE cinema screenings across the UK for Home Educators. Please note that if you book and are a no show without following the correct cancellation procedures there WILL be a charge made! This is to stop abuse of a wonderful opportunity for Home Educators. Autsim friendly screenings are available, as are venues with disability access but it's a good idea to book in good time for these.
A wonderful FREE opportunity to go see a Roald Dahl Film on the big screen in order to help visual and multi-sensory learners bring his stories to life. Learning resources are provided on the website for you to download and use.

"Matilda" is our top pick. This film covers the topic of bullying, which is sadly why some children become home educated. What better way to help a child heal than a nice trip to the pictures together?
Link to downloadable learning resource from the IntoFilm team for Matilda so you can see for yourself if you think it may be helpful for your child in advance.
We've also spotted Dahl films on amazon prime, if you are an existing subscriber, and audio books on sale at the Book People this month. Both film and audio can be very help for encouraging literacy for our reluctant/struggling readers.
Do please add to the comments section of this blog if you stumble across any more Dahl resources you think other families may enjoy using!
