Year 6 Transition Workshops

Summer Term programmes to support Year 6 pupils prepare for their transition to secondary school

A really useful session full of drama exercises which enabled the children to develop teamwork and other skills. The programme was excellent!

Secondary school can be a mountain of mystery, masked in fear and expectation. Whether you’re looking for a celebration, a preparation or both, MakeBelieve Arts have created two diverse programmes to meet the needs of your school.

Choose from: 

I'm a Shipwrecked Year 6...Get Me Out of Here!

A one day workshop 

Your pupils join the crew of HMS MakeBelieve Arts and sail the seven seas to an exploration and adventure. Alas, the ship crashes against rocks and the crewmates find themselves shipwrecked on a desert island!

Year 6 must work together to survive by utilising their teamwork, communication and creative skills; the skills that will be indispensable to their success at secondary school.

Cost: £900 for up to 2 classes
Please contact us for options for more than 2 classes.

Using drama helped me not to worry about getting lost at secondary school. I feel more confident about making new friends.
