Summary

In the last few years Ofsted has highlighted the impact that moving to secondary school has on some children, often causing poor or little academic progress for some time after the transition due to the stress it can cause. As a result, Ofsted believes that there is a strong need to support pupils through this transition and that primary schools should develop a greater understanding of this need. This brand new 100 ideas title provides teachers with a comprehensive collection of easy-to-use activities and support information to prepare the pupils at this key stage of their education. Molly Potter suggests the types of information that can be gathered from secondary schools to help pupils and their parents with the transition. Also included are activities that will help pupils address the main anxieties they may face, such as fear of bullying and getting lost, the increase in the amount of homework they will be given and the new subjects they will have to study. The ideas will help children to generally feel more positive about the move, and there is also advice on how to support parents and carers through the transition. If you are the teacher of a class at the top end of primary or if you are responsible for transition work in your school - this book is for you. The activities and ideas can be used to create an extremely effective transition package for your pupils that will thoroughly prepare them for their move to secondary school.
