Using the short film The Penguin Who Couldn't Swim, this resource is suitable for use with pupils aged 711 and helps pupils to safely identify and discuss issues around body image while celebrating the differences that make everyone unique. Using images and film highlights, pupils are encouraged to analyse and explore characters before tracking their differing emotional journeys through the entire film.

This resource is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation with embedded clips and the teachers' notes document includes activity sheets to support learners in class or at home. Where appropriate,
suggestions for adaptation for home learning have been included in the teachers' notes.
