THEIR KS2-SPECIFIC RESOURCES WILL AID YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE TO THE EMMERDALE STUDIO EXPERIENCE
- Pre-visit resources will guide pupils to understand that soap operas use a variety of methods to create characters and storylines. They will examine stereotypes and archetypes to develop their own characters and write a script including edge-of-the-seat cliff hangers.
- On their 80-minute guided tour of the Emmerdale Studio Experience, pupils will see first-hand how teams of professionals turn scripts into the finished episode, using sets, props, special effects, and of course actors!
- Their 45-minute FREE* optional workshop deconstructs a real scene from script to screen, where pupils can see original materials that the production crew used up-close!
- Post-visit resources guide pupils to put their learning into practice. They’ll turn their stories into a filmed episode, by taking on roles of the TV professionals and following the filming processes used in real-life.
