Year 6 Transition

Welcome to our virtual transition day!


A warm welcome to our new pupils!


We would like to invite your child to our Virtual Transition Day taking place on the Wednesday 7th July. This would usually be the day when we would be welcoming your children to our school and giving them an experience of life at Heathcote School. As this is currently not possible due to Covid restrictions, we are bringing the school to you. Your child can access this at school or at home as we explain below.

On the 7th of July your child will attend their primary school as normal. We have written to all Head Teachers to ask, if possible, for pupils to follow the proposed timetabled lessons (outlined below). The pre-recorded lessons will be available on the school website from 8.00am onwards (please see link). Should it not be possible to complete the transition lessons during the school day, please allow your child access from home at a convenient time. The day has been designed to provide your child with an insight into life as a pupil at our school.

Please see the structure for the day below. Lessons should be viewed in order if possible. The lessons follow the theme of our ethos; Encourage, Challenge and Succeed. Pupils must complete the work ready for September and keep it safe. They will then be shown how to upload this onto Google Classroom in the first week of term so that we can give feedback and praise for good quality work. This will also help them to immediately get used to Google Classroom as this is our on-line classroom system for setting homework, key messages and remote learning.

We look forward to seeing you in September!

Mr Gallacher and Ms Kee-Rose
