In addition to our free lesson plans, our popular KS2/KS3 Media & Fake News workshop will be returning in the Spring Term, it require students to work together in groups to categorise news stories according to different criteria, including: how the news was shared; who wrote it; text and images; and the emotive impact on the reader.
Curriculum topics available: Persuasive writing.
Students have the opportunity to identify with different types of media and their purpose. Explore and critique how the media presents information and uses language to create meaning and to understand the concept of 'fake news' and why it is important.
The experience is a brilliant stimulus for understanding how the media portrays people and to recognise its possible impact and explore how identity is affected by the media.

Madame Tussauds London is a historic building set over a number of levels. So that all our guests can move around the building with ease, our trained staff will ensure that guests with disabilities are transported safely from floor to floor within our building by means of a lift. For safety reasons we can only accept three wheelchair users in the building at any one time and it is strongly advised that you pre-book in advance.
Today’s lesson will be a unique insight into celebrity culture and the media. An educational visit will not only stretch your students English subject-knowledge by delving into the complex world of the media and developing their critical literacy skills, it will also encourage them to explore the concept of ‘Fake news’ and its impact on modern audiences.
