Mrs McCarthy, one of our school governors, came to Year Six to present a workshop on transition to secondary school.
Thoughts and feelings about leaving St Mary Magdalen’s were discussed in small groups, then shared as a class.
In addition, the pupils thought about what the secondary schools expect of its pupils: behaviour, organisation, attitude and taking personal responsibility.
A scenario about bullying was examined as a class. We looked at: different forms of bullying, how bullying can happen in school as well of out of school, and that if at all worried it is “your” responsibility to tell.
Thank you to Mrs McCarthy for coming in and preparing Year Six for their transition. It was important for them to express their thoughts and feelings about moving onto secondary school.
