This resource focuses on the themes of diversity and equality by focusing on the characters and stories in two short films across two lessons. Both films were made in the 1960s; Jemima + Johnny is set in post-Windrush London and Tiger Bay and The Rainbow Club I is set in Cardiff, Wales. This resource includes two lessons that enable teachers and pupils to engage with drama and documentary footage featuring people of colour to develop language, literacy and cultural appreciation skills. Children will be able to compare and contrast the similarities and differences between life for children in 2016 and the 1960s through analysing the film through the 3Cs and 3Ss of film. This resource was written by a Teach First teacher.
