Year 6's Transition to secondary school

Hopefully by now you should have heard deatils from your secondary school about transition. As I'm sure your aware now, the usual school visits will not be taking place. Different schools are doing their transition differently: so please see below for more information about your school.

I will endevour to email the pupils when a new transition activity is avalible from their school via their DB account. They should then complete these activities as part of their home learning. In school we will also be doing transition activities, but these will focus more on saying goodbye to life at St. Stephens, emotions surrounding changes and generic questions the children have about secondary schools.

Any questions, I'm sure the secondary schools will be able to help- but if not, you can email me via your child's DB account; send a message to school with your child or send a message via the office and I'll see what I can do to help.

Thank you

Mrs. H Jones
