Kure Kure Teacher’s pack
Whats in the Kure Kure Teacher Pack?
– A downloadable 12-minute long assembly film which introduces students to Anna Mudeka and the history of her home country, Zimbabwe and includes extracts from the show.
– It will last between 60-90 minutes depending on the needs of the school. Five short, downloadable, KS3 classroom activities linked to the Kure Kure performance. Each activity is kicked off with a short extract film clip from the Kure Kure performance. There are also two longer extension activities.
1 Anna’s World
A Chatterbox activity getting to know all about the people and places in Anna’s life.
2 Cecil Rhodes Lottery
Cecil Rhodes was quoted as saying: You are an Englishman and have subsequently drawn the greatest prize in the lottery of life.
We take look at the life and legacy of Cecil Rhodes in numbers
3 In Our Shoes: Anna and Evelyn’s postcards
Students will put themselves in Anna’s, or her Mum, Evelyn’s shoes and write a postcard to the UK or Rugare.
4 You Got the Rhythm in YOU!
Anna explains the beats and leads the class on a rhythm mission!
5 A Leopard can change its spots!
Students will take inspiration from the textiles and colours of Zimbabwe to create their own African textile. Then transfer their design onto an outline of a Leopard.
Extension Activities (will incur additional costs, time and requires a large space)
1 Making Masks
This activity takes a bit more planning and incurs costs! BUT it is brilliant fun and the end product is dramatic and can be used in Extension Activity 2!
2 Kure Kure Drama
You need space for this session! The drama games take inspiration from the show and get students working together to create shapes, landscapes and scenes from the Kure Kure show.
