We have paired up with Brogdale CIC to offer virtual transition workshops for our Year 6 pupils in order to prepare them for secondary school.
The workshops will take place on Zoom which is an online video conferencing service. It is free to set up an account at https://www.zoom.us/ .
The sessions will still follow the theme of 'The Fairground' which takes the idea that going into a new situation like secondary school can be as overwhelming, exciting or frightening as a fairground, and uses the different rides as topic ideas.
Session 1: First time at the fair. How do I see myself? Strengths and thoughts.
Session 2: Fear at the fair. Worries, excitement and nerves, coping.
Session 3: From the top of the fair. Perspective.
Hopefully we will get a couple of our peer mentors from secondary school involved in this to give some top tips!
Session 4: All the fun at the fair. Highs and lows. Setting targets. Confidence.
The workshops will take place on the following dates at 11am:
· 2.6.20 · 9.6.20 · 16.6.20
If you have any questions please contact Miss Baird (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your child’s teacher.
We appreciate that not all children can access Zoom so Miss Baird will set up packs for pupils who cannot attend.
