End of year 6 performance

    I'm looking for inspiration for our end of year 6 leaver's performance (not that I am wishing this year away or anything). I've done the cheesy stuff in the past, bought in productions etc but I'm considering doing something a little more edgy and different. Has anyone ever considered doing an 'Educating Manchester' style performance? Is this even doable? A film crew visiting school? Seeing the school warts and all with comedy bits?? Potentially including parents- or kids dressed up such? Too far? Any suggestions, examples or ideas would be welcomed. Thanks

    We have bought in plays before, but the children (and parents) always prefer when we make our own.

    We themed our show around Gogglebox last year and had different families watching shows on TV (which were just an opportunity for children to have different scenes). We combined live scenes with videos we had made. The children loved it.

    Speak to your head in advance if you want to do this. Also be prepared to have to say "No" to pupils an awful lot.
    Heads are not generally keen for the school's weaknesses to aired to parents.

    Edgy is fine, but why?
    There is plenty to stress about in teaching, without creating your own worries and anxieties.

    It'll be the end of the school year. You'll be tired and you don't need anything difficult or controversial. Keep it simple.
