10 Minute Bullying Play, High School ScreenPlay Version

10 Minute Bullying Play, High School ScreenPlay Version

****This is the High School ScreenPlay Adaptation***** This is a tried and tested Script, created for a after school drama club. It was performed and filmed by a mixture of Lower and Upper KS2 children and uploaded onto the school's website. It would be perfect for an ICT, Drama Club or PSHE project. It also highlights 'first days' and transition along with sibling and peer relationships. It has an appropriate ending to promote 'doing the right thing' and forgiveness I give permission for the names and genders to be changed to suit the group performing. Please leave a review to help others thinking of purchasing.
