Fun Transition Day
On Wednesday 20th June, Kaye Crook, Val Selby and Chloe Vines took over 50 of our prospective Year 7 students for a Fun Maths Morning. The students made origami cubes, geometric shapes with straws and pipe cleaners and blew bubbles through them and used symmetry to make their own flags. The students had a great time and can’t wait to start here in September.

Here are some of the comments we received from the students after each day:
Comments from the accompanying teachers included that it was valuable for the students to understand what they may expect in Year 7, that it had greatly impacted on the students’ confidence about transferring to secondary school and that our students who helped during the day were a credit to us and were very polite and helpful. Once again a ‘Very Big Thank You’ to all that helped to make the days a success including all those behind the scenes, Nic Hudson for arranging the room changes, all the reception/office staff who fielded the enquiries and sent letters, Jane Hope for covering the teachers involved and Kate Frith for organising this with me and keeping me sane!
