Transition to secondary school
Help students consider the transition to secondary school and identify some of the challenges that can arise.
Using peer-to-peer discussion and activities, students will explore the transition to secondary school.
Lesson plan includes:
- PowerPoint for use in class
- starter activities – carry out a baseline assessment of students' prior knowledge, skills and understanding
- core peer-to-peer activities, plenaries and exciting extension ideas
- a film to support the activities
Transitioning to a new phase of school can be a difficult time under normal circumstances, but in this pandemic, the change may bring up more complex emotions that usual.
In their latest toolkit, our Mentally Healthy Schools team have pulled together lots of fantastic resources for teachers, parents and carers, to help prepare children for the change and help them mange and understand their emotions at this time.
