Plays focus on how to survive secondary school
A GROUP of performing arts students from John Cabot Academy in Kingswood have created two interactive plays about starting secondary school.
Entitled School Survival Guide and Fresh Start, the plays have been produced with children aged nine to 11 in mind.
They have been written, devised and developed by the Year 10 BTEC students in an attempt to dispel some anxieties and fears pupils have over the transition from primary to secondary school.
The plays were performed at the academy on Wednesday and were staged at Summerhill Academy and Begbrook Academy, both primary schools, yesterday.

Produced as part of Theatre in Education (TIE), all the shows involve audience participation.
As well as learning about subjects and issues through drama, a spokesman for the academy said the participating students were also developing other social and interactive skills.
Sam Bridges, a drama teacher at John Cabot, said: "The students are really looking forward to performing these plays and they have worked extremely hard.
"As an academy we are very aware that some pupils handle the transition between primary and secondary very well.
"We hope to alleviate some of the fears that some pupils have and hopefully these interactive fun plays will go some way in doing that."
