Tondu Transitions Project

Tondu Transitions School Project

by Ali Franks, Drama Development Worker

At the beginning of this term two of our local schools have merged: Tondu Primary and Pandy Infants in Aberkenfig. As part of their rolling programme to make the transition as smooth and positive as possible they asked for a Drama workshop to be run with every pupil in the school. Given that Drama requires participants to work and play together it seemed the perfect art form. Working with the Nursery right through to Year 6 the school have been taken on a journey through the woods with Goldilocks and the Three Bears and across the sea to Where the Wild Things are. The Year 6 group are working on a longer term project where they will devise a piece of theatre to show to their younger peers later on in the term. It has been great to be part of this important time at the school as our relationship with Tondu Primary School has developed over the last 7 years.
