Key Stage 3: We are delighted to announce our new Key Stage 3 Drama Resource Pack for at home learning. This is a verbatim project to go alongside our award-winning filmed production of Cookies.

The Free KS3 resource pack, which is ready to share directly with your students, consists of:

  • Teacher’s Powerpoint (shared via Google Slides) with relevant resources and notes, including details on the students’ at-home verbatim project and classroom activities to do at school
  • Student Powerpoint (shared via Google Slides) with step-by-step instructions for activities to complete
  • An interview guide sheet for students, to inform their interviews for the verbatim project

Please note the full film is not used in the Key Stage 3 resources due to sensitive content. For Key Stage 3 the film has been edited to a 17 minute version following one storyline.

These resources have been created by Education Consultant Susie Ferguson and the Masterclass Team.
