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:

9 sessions for Year 6 with a workbook to complete and videos from Matthew SyedMatthew BurtonGemma Oaten and Jaz Ampaw-Farr.

These sessions focus on things such as:

  • Being Awesome
  • Unlocking Your Mind
  • Dare to Take Risks
  • Making The Change
  • Lost but Not Lost
  • 'Bouncebackability'
  • 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
