Transition September 2020
We are pleased to be able to provide the following package of resources that can be used with your Year 6 child in readiness for them coming to Longbenton High School in September.
The package is designed to help Year 6 have their 'moment' of transition (although it looks different to normal at present due to Covid-19 closures) and to help support them, and you as parents, through this process.
‘Be Awesome, Go Big’ involves:
These sessions focus on things such as:
- Being Awesome
- Unlocking Your Mind
- Dare to Take Risks
- Making The Change
- Lost but Not Lost
- What is Normal Anyway
- Friendships and Fallouts
- Living Well
There is a competition to enter, where they can win a Hachette booklist, and also a transition grid downloadable below (Getting Ready to Go Big) full of tasks and activities for them to complete - please send in your completed tasks!
The Hatchette book competition is here: https://www.hachetteschools.co.uk/landing-page/hachette-schools/be-awesome-go-big-transition-resources-for-teachers-2/
A good resource to also look at in the meantime is the BBC Bitesize website on ‘Starting Secondary School’ https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zj2grj6
