PSHE/Citizenship GCSE: Black Roses: The Killing of Sophie Lancaster

Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death in a Lancashire park in 2007 because of her appearance.

These four short films combine the words of Sophie’s mother, Sylvia Lancaster (played by Julia Hesmondhalgh), with those of the poet Simon Armitage, to give voice to Sophie (played by Rachel Austin), before, during and after the savage attack.

This series is suitable for GCSE PSHE/Citizenship and touches upon topics that appear in AQA, OCR A, EDEXCEL, EDUQAS, WJEC GCSE in England and Wales, and CCEA GCSE in Northern Ireland and SQA National 5 in Scotland.

PLEASE NOTE: THESE SHORT FILMS CONTAIN SCENES THAT VIEWERS MAY FIND DISTURBING. TEACHER REVIEW IS RECOMMENDED PRIOR TO USE IN CLASS.
