Transition Activities

Please see below optional activities for students to participate in over the rest of this term and the summer holidays. This will support students in their academic transition to Carr Hill. We will be providing transition activities from multiple departments over the coming weeks, to ease students concerns and reaffirm that the work they will be expected to complete at the start of Year 7 will be a continuation of work they have done at Primary School. The first of these Transition Activities is Literacy.
