Find Your Feet: Transitions Activity for Year 6 Pupils
Download our classroom activities to help your Year 6 pupils transition to Year 7.
Transitioning from primary to secondary school is a particularly significant change for children. It is important that we acknowledge how they feel and help them gain skills to find solutions or strategies to manage these feelings.
Learning about change and how to cope with it, will help children with this particular transition as well as prepare them for many other changes and challenges they will face in life. Helping children build resilience and allowing them to have a chance to try out different coping skills and methods and find the ones that work for them is a really good starting point.
Remember that when delivering lessons on the topics of mental health, resilience and emotional wellbeing you might trigger feelings in children that they find difficult to cope with. Read through our considerations page before you get started and follow your schools' safeguarding policy if you're worried about a child at any time.
