This engaging resource uses the film Ping Pong to explore themes such as stereotyping, ageism, compassion and community. The four-lesson series will challenge students' perceptions around old age while developing key English skills, focusing on persuasive language in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Lesson One - What is a Pensioner?
Learners explore and challenge the stereotype of a pensioner by developing their skills of argument writing.
Lesson Two - The Experiences of Les D'Arcy
Focusing on the experiences of Les D'Arcy through different writing styles, students develop both reading and writing skills.
Lesson Three - Playing is an Honour
This lesson explores why older people would want to be competitive sports people through analysis and writing of newspaper articles.
Lesson Four - Should the Elderly be Competitive Sports People?
Exploring arguments regarding whether elderly people should be able to play competitive sports, learners go on to fully plan and present a well-structured debate on the subject.

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
