This Autumn, let Eastside support your students’ smooth return to school life with our Free Creative Video Workshop series, consisting of 12 educational videos perfect for primary and secondary teachers to use in the classroom, or share with any students shielding at home.

Eastside Creative Video Workshops support KS2 & 3 PSHE / Citizenship national curriculum learning outcomes, exploring two key topics:

  •  Black Lives Matter: Celebrating Black British Activism

  • Creative Wellbeing: Promoting Wellbeing Through the Arts

All video workshops have been designed by Eastside’s Professional creatives to suit a 50-min lesson containing creative activities and inspiration to get your students engaged in these important topics and boost PSHE learning. To get started simply gather the items on the resources checklist before playing the video in your classroom, pausing while your students work on each task.

OUR PROGRAMME OF ONLINE WORKSHOPS 

Content for video workshops has been developed by Eastside’s talented creatives with support from Dr Angelina Osborne, Black British historian and MIND (City, Hackney and Waltham Forest).
