Year 6 - 7 Transition Links
We know moving up to High school can be a scary thing and here at Vine Tree, we're here to support you as you make the next big step in your school journey.
On this page, you can find links to different High School's transition material.
Miss Handley will also use this page to upload Year 7 style work and transition booklets, for you to work through on your own, with older siblings already at High School or with your parents.
The page will be updated weekly with new 'Year 7 style' work.
Children should work through each interactive session, recording their answers in the accompanying workbook.
Session One: Being Awesome
Session Two: Unlocking Your Mind
Session Three: Dare To Take Risks
Session Four: Making The Change
Session Five: Lost But Not Lost
Session Six: Bouncebackability
Session Seven: What Is Normal Anyway
Session Eight: Friendships and Fallouts
Session Nine: Living Well
