Year 6 to 7 Transition

Year 5 to 7 Transitional Workshop

Over the last month, we’re been surveying parents about the upcoming summer holidays.⁣⁣

We’ve been interested to find out about:⁣⁣⁣

  • Activities that interest children the most, so we can make sure we put them on this summer⁣⁣⁣
  • Weeks in which parents will find activities most useful⁣⁣⁣
  • Importantly for us: how we can help year 6 children with their secondary school transition.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

We asked parents of years 5 & 6 children: would your children be interested in a Transitional Workshop to ease the transition from Primary School to Secondary School?⁣⁣⁣

🌟 80% said YES.⁣⁣⁣

An image showing a pie chart 20% (no) is in navy blue and the 80% segment (yes) is in light blue.

So, as part of our week of Summer Activities, we’re making it happen! Here’s what children can expect: ⁣⁣⁣

  • Some time with the TTS team, including Steve Thomas, our Director and a Former Head of Year in Local Schools. Steve and the team will be there to settle any anxieties and answer questions about their new school. ⁣⁣⁣
  • Representatives from most local schools who will be able to speak for school-specific queries.⁣⁣⁣
  • A range of activities to suit all children (sports – football, tennis and more, creative workshops – dance, drama, art, and more and teamp building activities.⁣⁣⁣
  • Children will be able to mix and match activities and socialise with children of their own age – many of which they’ll be joining in their new school! ⁣⁣⁣
  • The week of activities aims to integrate children amongst their new peers.⁣⁣⁣
  • We will provide them with a fun-packed week including a day at the Quarry park (with a swim in the pool) and a local excursion (either Sabrina Boat Tour, a trip to Dana Prison or a Guide around our historic town – with a ghost tour to keep it interesting!) ⁣⁣⁣
  • We want children to leave the workshop ready and excited for their next chapter in Secondary School.⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣It’s going to be a brilliant week and it’s £125 all-in: 1 week (09:00 – 3:00) of activities, a day out at the quarry, a swim, an excursion, snacks and drinks, and a certificate of participation! All you need to do is send the children with a packed lunch!⁣⁣⁣
