MysterySolved Challenge - Literacy Project for Year 6 Pupils

We have developed a new playwriting project starting this summer term...

Christie Von Agatha is London’s top theatre manager! However, she is in a bit of a pickle as she hasn’t got any new plays for her West End Theatre! And what is a theatre without any plays? It’s a building, just a boring old building and she can’t have that!

Has your class got what it takes to be London’s next top playwrights? Would they like their very own play staged in a West End theatre? Well, what are you waiting for...Apply Now!! Oh, and one more thing…don’t tell a soul…#keepthesecret!

Mysterysolved Challenge is an inclusive playwriting project for Upper Key Stage 2 pupils, which uses a theatre trip as a stimulus for in-school workshops with actor/facilitators in role. Over the course of half a term, children work with specialist facilitators to create their very own class play. The project can be tailored to support existing PSHE or literacy targets.


“This particular class have always been rather reluctant writers but actually worked through break-times without even noticing.” - Teacher 2016

Programme includes:

  • CPD day for teachers
  • Theatre tickets for students to see The Mousetrap at £8 each
  • 3 fun and interactive in-school writing workshops with 'actors in role'
  • Resources to encourage a collaborative approach to playwriting
  • A trip to St Martin's Theatre in the West End to see the class play performed by professional actors
  • Celebratory Awards Ceremony; all participants receive certificates & prizes

Applications are now closed for 2018
