Home Learning - Last Week of Term
Getting Ready for Secondary School
This is your very last week at Sythwood so, instead of completing different home learning challenges each day, we would like you to spend some time getting ready for secondary school.
First, read through the ‘It’s Your Move’ booklet that we sent home to you – it’s full of fantastic information and fun puzzles.
Now check out your new school’s website and read through any information your new school has sent to you – either in the post or by email.
Finally, click on the image below to access a PowerPoint: have a think about each of the questions.
These are other activities that you can do online (click the pictures):
