AMES ANNUAL REPORT
Our Annual Report is now available here.
"HAIR LOVE" VIRTUAL LEARNING UNIT
As many of us are now teaching virtually, AMES has produced a unit of work based on the Academy Award winning short film "Hair Love" for use with classes. It is designed to work with Google Classroom but should be easily adaptable to whatever system your school is using. Hope it helps. Stay safe! Access the resources here.

NATIONAL 5 MEDIA POSTERS
AMES has produced 2 colourful large (A1) classroom posters for the revised National 5 Media. One covers the 4 media content key aspects; the other covers the 3 contextual key aspects. Cost £20 (inc postage & packing). Cheques (payable to AMES) or official orders should be sent to: Robert Preece, AMES Treasurer, 10 Heatherley Crescent, Inverness, IV2 4AW.
There is also a free A1 poster for Higher Media which unpacks the key aspects and shows their integration. It prints A4 from Microsoft Edge - or you can go to your local printer and have an A1 version printed.
