Covid-19 meant that we couldn’t run our Transformations workshops last year, at least not in person with real classes about to leave Year 6 and make the step up to secondary school.

So instead, we made a film. And it wasn’t the same as being together for a fun day of curiosity and creativity, but lots of children got to see it, and had a chance to reflect and mark a big moment of change in their lives.

This year has been a ‘similar-but-different’ rollercoaster for Year 6 children. If a child you know has been through a tough time, is missing friends, or is feeling anxious about making a new start then this is for you…

And, more importantly, for them:

If you enjoy this film, please share it widely! #Transformations2021

And if you want to tell us about your experience of it, please say
