New transition collection

Jean Gross's picture

Here we have a really nice end-of-year activity for Year 7s. They have to create a  How to Survive Year 7 Guide for the next Y7 students. There is a  PowerPoint which can be used to introduce the activity through discussion and suggest what aspects of school might go in the guide. Students then need to work together (pairs/small groups) to create their a guide. Thanks to ashleymarie for these resources.

In this compendium we have a bumper set of Transition ideas for all ages as they move from class to class or school to school, a Y6 lesson on transition and managing change from Katie Jump (thank you!) and some fabulous resources and scheme of work from the brilliant Ruth Frost, SEAL Coordinator at a Torfaen school in Wales. The scheme (Y7 term 1 SOW) can be on transition days in Y6 when children visit their new secondary school. Many of the activities could also be used when they start in Y7.

Moving Up is a series of art-based activities which support year 6 children in their transition from primary to secondary school. This resource is designed to give teachers the tools to work with children to express and communicate their feelings about this transition through discussion, images, movements and sound. With thanks to the Serpentine Gallleries. There are four files- 0 (Discussion starters, 1 (My Alter Ego), 2 (Special skills and Super Powers) and 3 (New Beginnings).

Suitable for use by either primary or secondary teachers, the assembly/lesson makes use of film clips including Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Skateboards and Spandex and Akeelah and the Bee that look at first days at school, potential problems students may come across and how to tackle them . Topics included are negotiating the first days, making new friends, believing in yourself and working together.
