We are passionate about engaging with younger children at an age where they are starting to choose what to watch on their own.
This resource is aimed at Key Stage 2 learners (Years 5/6), and is accredited by the PSHE Association. These lesson plans and activities help pupils develop the tools to make the best choices about what to watch, when and where - and are accompanied by comprehensive teacher guidance notes and supporting activity resources.
The lessons look at age ratings, why they exist, and allow KS2 pupils to consider issues such as:
- What age ratings are and how they work
- The suitability of content
- How they make their own decisions
- Why regulations and rules are in place
- Where they should go for more information when deciding what to watch, and how to steer clear of content that might be unsuitable
Making use of our existing resources designed to help children choose what’s right for them - such as our content advice - the lessons use a variety of techniques including role play, thought mapping, and scenarios for discussion.
