Year 7 Citizenship & English Lesson Plans

Wednesday 13th October 2010

Barnardos website has a range of Primary and Secondary teaching resources available to download free.

Of particular interest to Year 7 Citizenship or English teachers will be five interactive lesson plans designed to teach pupils how to analyse communication materials effectively. The lesson plans are also aimed to help pupils learn about the contemporary issues that vulnerable children in the UK face.

Each lesson plan is complete with exciting support material and homework to aid your pupils learning.

The first lesson, titled "Discover Barnardos and the charity sector" helps children gain an understanding of the charity sector as a whole, Barnardos development over the ages and the plight of vulnerable children in the UK.  The second and third lessons, "Understanding Barnardos Communication with the Public" utilise posters from previous Barnardos advertising campaigns and ask pupils to assess the communication materials effectiveness by examining language devices, imagery and general form.  

The final two lessons, "Create your Own Poster for Barnardos" ask pupils to use their media analysis skills to make their own poster for Barnardos. Children will work either individually or in pairs and will have the chance to be entered into a Barnardos poster competition!
