Year 6 to 7 Transition 2021
Welcome to the year 6-7 transition page. We have created this page in order to try and help you with your transition into our School community.
Keep reading this summer:
We know that reading for pleasure is a key to success in secondary school. It helps pupils progress in all of their subjects and it also supports their wellbeing.
Library Reading Task - Summer Reading Passport aims to encourage your child to read and record their reading to provide us with an idea of what they like to read.
What they fill in will influence displays and stock purchases, and will help us guide them when they are looking for reading materials.
if you are not able to download and print the passport please just take the headings and write the tasks you manage to complete onto paper.
Mini Book Club - Year 7 Transition
To help the new Year 7s get off to a good start, we are also taking part in a Mini Book Club over the summer.
We hope that all new Year 7s will take the opportunity to read When Secrets Set Sail by Sita Brahmachari. Questions and an activities pack, relating to the book will be available from a link here to complete before school starts.
the book is available as an e-book for 99p between 5th July until 15th August from the following platforms: Amazon, Google Play, Apple and ebooks.com. This should enable it to be read on most smartphones, tablets and computers, you may be able to borrow the book from the public library as well.
Please can you encourage and support your child with reading the book and completing the activities. They are designed to be fun and involve some writing, drawing and model making. We will be talking to pupils in September about what they have done and look forward to seeing some of the results of their creative activities. Talk to your child about the book and if possible, read it along with them so that you can discuss it.
A museum and a library are key locations in the book - if your local library has re-opened, please encourage your child to visit and make use of it. Trips to local museums and places of interest are also really useful in supporting children to learn about their local area and the world around them. By encouraging them to get to know their way around you will be building their independence. This helps them feel more confident about starting a new school.
