Use freeze frames in your classroom to develop understanding of the texts read in class or to investigate historical events. Freeze frames are a great way to explore different situations that characters or historical figures find themselves in, or to consider who was involved in different events.

What are freeze frames?

Freeze frames are a strategy used in drama to explore a particular scene in more detail by asking groups of pupils to recreate a particular scene from a book as a still image.

The resources in this pack provide opportunities for pupils to record their freeze frame, either as a photograph or a simple sketch, adding annotations to record who each person in the freeze frame is, what they are doing and how they are feeling.

What is included in this resource?

  • freeze frame - capturing the image worksheet
  • Teacher notes with guidance on how the resources could be used in the classroom

How can these resources be used?

Pupils can create a freeze frame (a still image) linked to a book you are reading, deciding what has happened, who was there and how they might be feeling. It can also be used in other subjects: in history to create a freeze frame of a historical event; in geography to show how people react to natural phenomenon such as a volcanic eruption or flood; or in DT or science to show the moment a significant discovery is made.
