What year groups is Twig appropriate for?

How should I use Twig with my students?

Teachers and students use Twig films in many different ways. In the classroom, they can be used to introduce a lesson or concept, to summarise a topic, or to stimulate thought and discussion. They are also great tools for homework, revision and as extension work for inquisitive minds.

There are Learning Materials available for each topic, which can help you find ideas on how using Twig can fit in with your teaching.
