Synopsis

Moving On Up! All You Need to Ease the Transition from Primary to Secondary School by Molly Potter

The whole area of transition is under resourced and Molly's book will be well received by both Year 6 as they prepare pupils for secondary school and also by Year 7 teachers, who could use it in the first few weeks when they are getting to know their new pupils. There has been much recent focus on the impact of transition and the need to support children through it. This book includes easy-to-use and meaningful activities that aim to support children through this potentially stressful time. The activities are extremely user friendly and would take little or no preparation on the part of the teacher. This new book from Molly Potter addresses the perennial problem of how to prepare Year 6 children for secondary school. It covers issues that would be explored in PSHE, year group assemblies and literacy lessons. It also includes leaflets for pupils and parents on issues such as peer influence, coping with change and what change to expect. The activities are a combination of fun to do, such as 'Getting to know your new teachers' and a quiz on 'How organised you are' but also delve into more emotional issues such as 'How you feel about secondary school' and 'The effects of peer pressure'.
