Fri 1st - All day - Transition Friday 1st July onwards - Samarès transition - this year we will be moving to our new classes from this day until the end of term. This way the children will get to know their new teachers very well. The teachers will have two weeks to get to know their new children and to have detailed hand-over conversations with the previous teacher to make sure that they know exactly where each child is with their learning and what they need to make progress. The classes will also start a project which will then be continued over the summer holiday and completed in the first half-term back so that children continue to learn. When we start back in September, the children and teachers will already know each other very well and can get straight into learning. We hope that this new system will stop learning ‘dipping’ over the long summer break and reduce any anxiety about their new class that children (and teachers!!) often have.
Before these two weeks, Year 6 will be learning life-skills of writing a job application, applying for a specific job in school and being interviewed for their chosen job. These jobs will include Teaching Assistant, Assistant caretaker, Administrator etc. and Year 6 will take up the role during the last two weeks. They will be strengthening their learning by putting it into action. Research tells us that teaching someone else is the highest form of learning - this will not be two weeks off!! They will also have sessions designed to support their transition into secondary school including working with secondary school staff and to catch-up learning on specific skills.
