Gender equality: year of the woman

Gender equality: year of the woman

It’s been 100 years since some women got the vote in the UK. This year, hundreds of famous entertainers have launched a campaign against the harassment of women. The campaign, called ‘Time’s Up’, is a reminder that women are still sometimes mistreated simply because they are female. This 6-session scheme of work explores barriers that women face both in and out of the workplace and asks questions which encourage all genders to consider how they and society are affected by this issue. There is also an additional optional session covering sexual harassment. Use these fully-planned, interactive and multi-media resources to develop your student’s critical thinking and literacy skills and to embed cognitively challenging conversations in your classrooms.

Paddington Film KS2 Newspaper report and review writing

Paddington Film KS2 Newspaper report and review writing

A unit of work based on the film Paddington by Heyday films. It includes grammar activities such as how to use inverted commas and how to use passive and active voice. The unit also includes modelled writing of a newspaper report alongside differentiated newspaper planning sheets. There is also a lesson on writing a review of the film. I used this with a Year 6 class as part of a two week unit on film using Paddington as a stimulus. It has excellent cross-curricular links to PSHE and Citizenship; lots of opportunity to discuss similarities between Paddington and refugees.
