Key Stage 3

Our KS3-specific resources will aid your learning experience to the Emmerdale Studio Experience:

  • Pre-visit resources will guide pupils to understand that soap operas use a variety of methods to create characters and storylines. They will examine stereotypes and archetypes to develop their own characters and write a script including edge-of-the-seat cliff hangers.
  • On their 80-minute guided tour of the Emmerdale Studio Experience, pupils will see first-hand how teams of professionals turn scripts into the finished episode, using sets, props, special effects, and of course actors!
  • Our 45-minute FREE* optional workshop deconstructs a real scene from script to screen, where pupils can see original materials that the production crew used up-close!
  • Post-visit resources guide pupils to put their learning into practice. Pupils will research different job roles in making a television drama and will use the knowledge of the production process to create their own filmed sequence for a soap opera drama.
