Year 6 Pupils - Getting Ready for Secondary School
This Year 6 transition pack may help to alleviate some anxieties that children will have about moving onto Year 7 in September 2020 especially as we all have no information as yet about when schools will re-open. Please do not feel that these have to be printed off and completed . They can be, if you want to/are able to but the packs can also be discussion points for you and your child.
Getting them to look on the school's website and maybe making up their own books about the school is also a good idea and part of what we would be doing with them after the Easter holiday if we were not in this current crisis.
