Welcome to our own transition page! Due to COVID-19 and the impact it is having on our planning, for your transition programme, I have created this page to make sure you receive all of the usual information virtually.
Please email me using the email address below (using a parent’s/carers email address) any pieces of work, drawings that I can share with your new year group, on this page.
In place of the visits Mrs Maguire (Assistant SEN coordinator) and I would have completed in Term 5, we have put together a video to introduce ourselves. Click here for the video:
I have also tried to answer some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), which I think you would have asked during the visits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Awesome Audible – FREE books!
Fact: Reading for 20 minutes a day can improve your overall grades by 2 (GCSE grading) in most subjects! Reading widens vocabulary and improves grammar and spelling, this means smarter writing and essay responses!
Don’t like reading?…..Research has also shown that listening to books is just as useful as reading them in the traditional way – Hurrah!
Challenge – pick an audible book and when you’ve finished it, write a review that I can add, for others to read, on our webpage!
This year to welcome you to St Laurence we are taking part in the BookBuzz program. Every new year 7 will receive a free book from a selection of 17 which you get to choose and keep. Perhaps you’d like to look at the BookBuzz website and start thinking about which book you would like?
What to read next?
We know that sometimes it’s possible to get stuck with your favourite authors, so the ILC team have put together some posters with lots of inspiration of books you might like to try next. So if you love David Walliams, Jacqueline Wilson, Beast Quest, Harry Potter and lots of others have a look and see if you can find something new to try. You never know you might find your new favourite! Select each thumbnail image below to enlarge.
