Primary: Transition Projects
Suitable for: Transition between key stage 1 (year 2) to key stage 2 (year 3)
Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.
As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.
We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.
We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.
With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.
Ifwhen we meet again, why, we shall smile
‘By the end of the end of the project, staff’s initial apprehension was annulled. This was mirrored by the amazed and enthusiastic appreciation of our parents.’

The transition from infant to junior school is important in the lives of children and their families, yet research has shown that transitions can be stressful for children. This project facilitates joint working between Year 2 and Year 3 pupils and teachers to support this transition.
