Wrong Flowers Key Stage 2 Learning Materials for teachers

This section is designed for teachers of Key Stage 2, and provides a series of lessons that you can follow in the classroom to introduce students to the short film genre, develop understanding of the language of film, and to enable discussion of the issues raised in the film, The Wrong Flowers.

You are invited to work on creative responses to the film with your students and to send their work to be published online as part of this resource. We aim to provide a constantly growing and developing resource to help inspire and encourage others.

To see other students’ poems and visual art, and for details of how your school can participate, go to the Over to you! section.
