The transition to secondary school is a big moment for any child but during these unprecedented times, pupils may feel anxious or unsure about what is to come. The following resources have been created to prepare Year 6 pupils for the transition to secondary school.
The resources (below) are part of the ‘Be Awesome, Go Big’package, a project from PiXL Cluband Hachette Children’s Group, to help Year 6 students transition into Year 7. It can be used by students and parents at home or in school with teachers in class and is designed to be motivational, helpful and reassuring to help young people feel valued, loved, encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead.
These resources are only to help and guide your child. They do not have to complete all of the tasks, but if they wish, they can work through each interactive lesson, recording their answers in the accompanying workbook. A copy of the workbook has been posted home to each of our new Year 7 students. Please enjoy working your way through these resources.
This introductory videoexplains the project in more detail (the video is underneath the boxes).
There are also guides for parents and carers which can be downloaded by clicking this link.
The workbooks which accompany the sessions can be found below. You can either print off a copy or type your responses into the editable version (requires Microsoft Powerpoint).
Y9 students were invited to breakfast today. They all had an excellent year and are great role models! Miss Robins enjoyed hearing about career aspirations: dentist, lawyer, journalist, actor, teacher(we hope at #TeamGraham!), B&B proprietor and plans to go to university! 🥐👏🤩 pic.twitter.com/6TGx…
