Transition dates:

Transition visit day 2024: Wednesday 26th June 2024. NB Some secondary schools will need to use additional days in this week for visits as, for good reasons, they have developed an approach that requires more than one transition visit day.

The week of the 24th - 28th June 2024 could be used for other transition events and be seen as a 'transition week.'

Transition visit day 2025: Wednesday 25th June 2025 (with additional visits taking place during that week)

Writing sample

It has been agreed by schools across the borough that it is useful for a sample of writing for Year 6 pupils to be shared with their secondary school.

A possible task for this purpose is a letter from Year 6 children to a teacher at their new school, providing information about themselves. This supports both pastoral and academic transition. 

Below are materials shared by Sarah Preston at Emmbrook Junior School, which schools may wish to use to support work on the writing sample. These materials are for a letter from Year 5 children to their Year 6 teacher, but exactly the same approach can be applied for Year 6-7 transition. The materials include a letter from the Year 6 teacher to the Year 5s, which the Year 5 children use as a model for their letter. Heads of Year 7 could write a similar letter to incoming Year 6s. Year 6 teachers would find it helpful to have the letter from the Head of Year 7 for use in the second half of the summer term.
