Moving On Up; Transition
(1 Hour Play for Year 7)
This 60 minute interactive performance is perfect for larger groups of students to watch together, especially on induction days, or as a post SATS treat. Based on real life experiences, and delivered in part by the filmed testimony of Year 7 students, ‘Moving On Up’ delves into the lives and minds of young people as they make the move from Primary to Secondary school. Providing a humorous insight into the various concerns associated with moving on, our play aims to reassure students, alleviate any fears and anxieties they may have and, moreover, explore coping strategies alongside the many positive elements that are part of the transition experience.
(45 Minute assembly & workshops for Year 7)
Powerful Choices is an early intervention approach to understanding key messages around the topic of knife crime, gang violence and keeping safe. Following a successful run for Year 5 and 6 students in London Primary schools, we are excited to now offer Year 7 students the chance to take part in our ‘Powerful Choices’ assembly and workshop that will support students to:
• Recognise and manage risk and difficult situations
• Understand how to have respectful relationships
• Explore the immediate and far-reaching consequences of knife crime and gang violence on the victim, the perpetrator, their families and the wider community
• Identify how to access support and who can help them
• Have difficult conversations with their peers and adults
