Year 6 Transition
Secondary schools will have been very busy during recent times preparing for their new arrivals in September. Although transition days won’t be happening in the usual way, this week we have been sent information about how some Secondary Schools have developed Transition Areas that you can access online, with information, welcome details and tour videos. We have created a document with all of this information and we hope you will find it helpful.
Liverpool Learning Partnership has also created a Padlet resource to support families in preparing pupils for starting secondary schools. Here is the link:
Over the next few days, you will receive a pack for children with a range of activities linked to the end of Year 6. Children learning at home will receive this in the post, and children learning in schol will receive a pack to take home. There is some information included about a Virtual Leavers’ Presentation and Virtual School Trip that we will organise for the end of term!

Home Learning Project
We know children might be feeling worried or confused at the moment about everything that is going on and not seeing their friends and older relatives, and not being able to go to school. Save the Children have written some important tips on how to talk to children, help them express their feelings, and support their learning. They have included specific support around the virus for children, and support for parents too.
