Student and Teacher Led Transition
Pupils are taught ICT programmes such as Scratch/Kodu/Python for Years 3-5 delivered on a fortnightly basis by subject staff and CYLs –parents are often invited to work with students in the lesson.
Reading Buddies/ Accelerated Readers: The Head of Learning Resource Centre has supported partner primaries with setting up of accelerated readers and schools come to the academy on a weekly basis to participate in the programme now rolled out to Year 3 in some schools.
We also organise…
- An annual Christmas Party for Year 3 pupils and Pantomime day party run by our Co-operative Young Leaders
- Literacy and Activity days for primary schools, specifically targeting Year 5, hosting Year 5 Activity days- teambuilding/sports festivals/ ICT/literacy led by CYL
- Literacy programmes based on KS2/3 curriculum eg Kensuke’s Kingdom Funny Bones.
