Top Tips for Transition to Secondary School
Some Secondary School teachers are sending through tips to help you with the transition to Secondary School. When we receive them we will share them with you on here:
1. Start thinking about how you can be independent at home. For example, making your own lunch, putting your clothes away, making your bed.
2. Share with your parents who else is going to your new school.
In Term 4 we will be learning about the Victorians and using this to feed in to other areas of the curriculum where possible. If the children want to bring in anything from home to support this topic that would be greatly appreciated. Our class book this term will be Street Child. If you have any topic-related books at home then please do bring them in to share!
Our Maths topics will be:
Measurements including perimeter and area;
Ratio and Proportion.
