Geography/Citizenship and Film KS1/2
The Cave of the Yellow Dog
There is a wealth of world cinema which can be used to illustrate the range of societies on the planet.
Films offer the chance to look into other ways of life and to identify different terrains and climate as well as developing a wider understanding of differing social structures and behaviour.
CPD would look at how films can be creatively used to enhance the study of geography with links across the curriculum to include literacy, art, music and citizenship.
Each workshop can be tailor made to complement the area of study and age range of pupils and can be offered as a half or full day training.
There will be a resource pack and refreshments included.
£150 per teacher for full day
