Learning Project - to be done throughout the week
The project's this week will help you to remember all the things you have achieved at primary school and how knowledgeable and resilient you have become!

Transition

 

 Moving to a new school is both exciting and nerve wracking. It has been a really strange time leading up to this change and therefore it's important to talk to your family and work through some of these activities. It’s a journey not just for you but for your family and it’ll mean changes for them too.


This pack has some fun activities to do with them before you start your new school – the “Getting Ready” pack. You’ll get some more activities once you start at school all about “Settling In”. Talk to your family about how you are feeling so that they know how they can support you.
