In this section you will find the Cultural Literacy Learning Programme materials for KS2. Click on the images below to access the film and prompt for each lesson.
The lesson prompts include objectives for Dialogue and Argumentation, Cultural Understanding themes and ideas for discussions ‘about’ the films and ‘beyond’ the films. There is an additional idea for some Cultural Expression if you want to extend the lesson to enable the students to respond multi-modally to the films. These are lesson prompts, not scripted plans. We have found most success where teachers were able to take initial ideas and put their own spin on lesson plans. We would suggest you take the lessons in order as the dialogue and argumentation objectives build cumulatively.
We hope you enjoy watching the films and using the lesson prompts to promote good thinking, talking and cultural literacy in your class.
