Year 6-7 Transition

Lesson plan with 6 Lessons
Year 6 to Year 7 Transition: Scheme of Work
Introduction:This set of six lessons has been designed to support Year Six pupils as they begin to think about their move to Secondary Education. The content has been designed to support both pastoral care (with a focus on wellbeing and positive mental health) and some of the more practical matters that affect this group (timetabling, walking to schoolnetc). The slides are fully adaptable, so can easily be changed to suit your school's unique context. The lessons link directly to the PSHE Association's Programme of Study for KS1-5 and can compliment your existing PSHE programme, as well as the transition resources provided by your feeder secondaries.Important note for teachers: Some of the slides require you to insert an image or example specific to your specific school or trust - this is to allow your pupils to have real practical examples applicable to them, hopefully making the transition process more seamless. For example, a timetable for lesson 3.
