Pupils from Angley School with Brittania
Film: ‘Kushti Atchin Tan’
Produced by Romany pupils from Angley School in Cranbrook, this film about contemporary Romany life and 'old ways' is part of a new teachers pack for Kent schools.
This film forms part of a recently-introduced teachers pack for Kent schools, designed to introduce Key Stage 3 (aged 11-14) students to aspects of Gypsy Traveller culture and history.
Brittania, born in a wagon in 1921
The ‘Kushti Atchin Tan’ teacher’s pack, meaning ‘Good Stopping Place’ outlines the history of Romany travellers and the impact of their language in an English classroom.
The film was made in 2006 by a group of Gypsy traveller students of Romany origin who attend Angley School.
