Festival of Learning
The Year 6/7 transition is perhaps the most challenging one for students in compulsory education. They are plunged into a curriculum and timetable very different from anything they have ever experienced, they are challenged by having a range of subject specialist teachers and also need to recalibrate their learning in core subjects post SATs. It is very much a period of adaptation with a focus on learning new skills and knowledge to prepare them for GCSE level study.
The festival of learning is an opportunity for students to inform their parents/carers about their progress on route to GCSE success.
