Stage movement: promoting smooth transition across Key Stages
This scheme is not so much a module or unit of work, as it is an approach bank, aimed at providing advice on a range of ways to promote successful transition from KS2 into secondary school, with a drama focus. It is targeted at teachers who have been teaching for two to five years approximately, but is appropriate for anyone who is seeking extra challenges, or looking for ways to make the work they already carry out more strategic and wide reaching.
- Approach 1: The School Play – using the school production as a tool to embrace your primaries and create community cohesion
- Approach 2: A Play in a Day – advantages and disadvantages of a one-off transition event
- Approach 3: Theatre in Education – combining the assessment needs of your students with the transition needs of your feeder primaries
- Approach 4: Games Workshops
