Teachers notes

This educational website for the Boy in the Striped Pyjamas features a range of carefully designed tasks enabling students to engage with different text types, as well as exploring the the key messages of this fictional story.

Particularly suitable for English at KS3, the site could also be used in any subject to develop students' emotional and moving image literacy.

Activities focus on still and moving images alongside script elements, publicity materials and extracts from an exclusive interview with the author, John Boyne. The tasks are designed to exercise skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening as students explore the film from a number of angles.
