Tyndale Primary School

Year 6 Transition Programme

Welcome to the GLT Primary bespoke transition programme designed to meet the needs of Year 6 pupils embarking on their transition to Year 7 in September (produced by Tyndale Primary School - so you might recognise a few familiar voices).

The programme is uniquely designed to cover all key knowledge areas in core subjects often identified by Year 7 teachers as needing further consolidation.

It is inclusive of carefully selected PSHE topics aimed to reduce ‘new starter anxiety’ through lessons designed to boost confidence, raise self-esteem, and improve social skills.

It features taught ‘Study Skills’ lessons to improve organisation, enable increased retention of knowledge and promote efficient time management so that you can give your pupils the ‘best chance of success’ in their secondary school career.

This resource can be used in multiple ways; by primary schools delivered remotely or by Year 6 teachers to effectively prepare pupils for transition, it can be sent to feeder primaries by secondary schools wanting to fully equip their future students for the start of Year 7, or it could be used by parents as a summer catch up programme.
