We have created an easy to use lesson and workbook using the characters from My Mate Fancies You, our theatre in education programme on puberty and the transition to secondary school. The lesson consists of 5 animations and 5 activities. They have been designed to be run by children themselves or with support from teachers, parents, guardians or siblings or with friends over video group chats.
These have been created specifically for these strange times and are available as a FREE download to help prepare year 6s for the changes ahead.
Loudmouth is a theatre in education company that delivers performances and workshops to help children and young people to stay healthy, happy and safe.
Many of you may know our longest running and most successful programme, My Mate Fancies You. It supports children in Key Stages 2 and 3 to learn about puberty and prepare them for the transition from primary to secondary school. We have been delivering versions of this programme since 1995 and usually deliver hundreds of sessions of this programme during the summer months.
However….there is a pretty good chance that due to Covid-19 and school closures that we won’t be able to deliver this programme in schools this summer. So, we have come up with this exciting and engaging alternative!
There are 2 files for this activity, The lesson file which is a pdf including links to all of the videos and a workbook in Word format for students to fill in during the lesson. You can download the lesson and the workbook using the 2 buttons below.
We’d love to have your feedback on these so please send any comments or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org These are our first animations and we have been busy learning the software to be able to create these. We are pleased with how these have turned out and will keep learning and developing further resources and hope you and your students enjoy and learn from these too.
Hope these are useful and stay safe!
