Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 First day of term is always new Y7 and Y11 only to bring eldest and youngest together, creates good connection from top to bottom 20:08 #ukedchat 20:08 @philosophyshop thank you. it all comes clear now #ukedchat @PhilWheeler1 we theme it too; done performing arts, sport and 20:09 maths over last three years #ukedchat gives it a focus @teamjacklin many schools do this but it needs careful planning to 20:09 be useful/effective #ukedchat RT @MartindalePaul: Help needed! My kids want to build our summer curric around go-karts!! Anyone made go-karts with KS2 20:09 chn? Ideas gtly rec'd! #ukedchat Many transitions/inductions in college don't cover basics and in FE 20:09 students are 'lost' by half term. #ukedchat @mr_chadwick not just curricular change though - institutional one 20:09 is bigger. How its managed is key issue IMO #ukedchat Also have shared class on vle with loads pics and vids of junior school teachers classrooms etc #ukedchat can ask questions at 20:09 home on forum RT @90_maz: #ukedchat run sessions for g and t y5/6 scientists 20:09 from feeder schools throughout th e year Year 5s do some work with us in the summer term to prepare them 20:09 for the new school year in September #ukedchat 20:10 #ukedchat secondary style lessons and subjects for a day. #ukedchat oh they get introduced to social media from reception year with us! They do visit junior school too of course! #ukedchat schools/college collaboration needs to be greater. Structured, co-operative, hand-in-hand. How can we get this b4 2013 @martindalepaul Big 'sit-in-able' ones or minis? #ukedchat If you are joining #ukedchat you may need to unprotect your tweets so that they can be collected for the archive

Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 @philallman1 But if curriculum were similar, institution would be 20:11 similar? #ukedchat 20:11 @HilaryNunns not good for motivation or progress #ukedchat Week at Secondary doing timetable with teachers before summer holidays worked great with my daughter. No worry in hols, fab! 20:12 #ukedchat RT @HilaryNunns: #ukedchat schools/college collaboration needs to be greater. Structured, co-operative, hand-in-hand. How can we 20:12 get this b4 2013 @PhilWheeler1 I'm passionate abt it. Was HT of a Y5-8 mid sch so 20:12 had to get it right! #ukedchat @HilaryNunns Joining the same Ed Trust should help, with everything turning Academy the links should become stronger 20:12 #ukedchat #ukedchat Interesting that transition in ofsted 2012 means ready to progress. Similar to proposals for new Nat.Curric.Different to 20:12 liaison. @ukedchat @philwheeler1 great transition activities I've used mission explore activities #ukedchat and y6-7 present to staff and 20:12 their class RT @philallman1: @mr_chadwick not necessarily! It would help to ease the bump but best transition practice is much wider than curr 20:12 #ukedchat RT @davidhunter: #ukedchat not much about ks1/ks2 transition. 20:12 Anyone find this an issue? @philallman1 sounds like you have a programme for success keep 20:12 up the good work #ukedchat @ukedchat we run some subject sessions in the primary schools, 20:12 have a taster day at the end of june #ukedchat @HilaryNunns #ukedchat - also the transition into primary school in 20:12 the 1st place. And, I found college to Uni the hardest! Our local secondary school invites new pupils in for the first week 20:13 of the summer holidays for a variety of activities #ukedchat To ease transition, learners should spend a few days in their new 20:13 environment #ukedchat @HilaryNunns the assumption they're big enough to cope is never 20:13 a good one! #ukedchat 20:13 @HilaryNunns agree. This is another debate I feel #ukedchat @MrWaldram #ukedchat Ride-on is their preference, building up to a race @ the end! Making team overalls etc too! They don't want 20:13 much! @philwheeler1 #ukedchat No not good for motivation! Handed over from big school to fend for themselves. Big adjustment which 20:13 not all manage RT @philallman1: @HilaryNunns the assumption they're big 20:14 enough to cope is never a good one! #ukedchat

Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 @mollywicks #ukedchat Interesting! So we're saying it's hard at 20:14 both ends of the spectrum! Induction is not all. @MartindalePaul sounds great. We've used construction kits 20:14 before. Like giant meccano. Quality #truestory #ukedchat #ukedchat current sld school home visits, school visits for y6, 20:14 multiple college visits in ks5.no internal transition though :-( RT @chrisquigley: #ukedchat Interesting that transition in ofsted 2012 means ready to progress. Similar to proposals for new 20:14 Nat.Curric.Different to liaison. Big problem we have with transition is not recieving full information from Primaries, Linked Documents, SEN docs etc 20:14 #ukedchat RT @ukedchat: 5 minutes until @PhilWheeler1 is hosting #ukedchat with the theme being around Transition. Info at 20:14 http://t.co/2N9vieTU #ukedchat processes of moving on have been traditionally called 20:15 transition. Now we may need to think of readiness. 20:15 @JOHNSAYERS @ukedchat #ukedchat cheers John great ideas @philallman1 So what else? In my experience of Y6 worries about bullying, more homework, getting lost, strict teachers/detentions 20:15 #ukedchat @teamjacklin ok so wht have U proposed U wnt from them or offered 2 help - its either unwillingness or capacity when ths occurs 20:15 #ukedchat As more schools become academies and join together, transition should become well knitted between same trust 20:15 Primaries/Secondaries #ukedchat @philwheeler1 massively! My twitter feed links to school website 20:15 so need to be appropriate! #ukedchat RT @JOHNSAYERS: @ukedchat @philwheeler1 great transition activities I've used mission explore activities #ukedchat and y6-7 20:15 present to staff and their class @chrisquigley forget that transition may take time for each individual. sound like transition needs to occur before arrival 20:15 #ukedchat Teachers visit and do lessons but not often enough and children need to know way around a bigger school where they are not 20:15 known #ukedchat @nickotkdIV after running around like crazy I can't do #ukedchat As a spec sch we don't have transition. I'll watch and learn. Enjoy 20:15 chat @mr_chadwick its the little things & an u/s of it being a rite of 20:16 passage that is vital. difft is ok as long as its handled well #ukedchat RT @JOHNSAYERS: @ukedchat @philwheeler1 great transition activities I've used mission explore activities #ukedchat and y6-7 20:16 present to staff and their class

Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 @shaz_yu #ukedchat In college we run taster sessions, but they r fluffy + warm, unlike real FE collg courses which are steeped in 20:16 coursework Great start thank you all moving on What is the importance of 20:16 transition? #ukedchat #ukedchat During summer term I take any SEND ch for extra visits to comp. They do a 'treasure hunt' where they find rooms using a 20:16 school map Our Y6s have received a visit from the head of our local secondary school and a maths teacher comes in once a week #ukedchat Alongside the summer masterclasses we run an activity week (PE) for incoming yr 7 and existing students. Get's over the fear! #ukedchat @MattOswin @mr_chadwick only way these go is in real time! #ukedchat RT @HilaryNunns: @shaz_yu #ukedchat In college we run taster sessions, but they r fluffy + warm, unlike real FE collg courses which are steeped in coursework @philallman1 Unfortunately its SIMS that has a gap in link docs. We can ask for everything from several schools but a lot to ask! #ukedchat Primary schools are all visited by a member of staff in June. Time consuming but worthwhile. #ukedchat @MattOswin Why do pupils want to go to school in hol? Should build into term time. We have similar offer and not real situation! #ukedchat @MattOswin If only :) #ukedchat @mr_chadwick @philallman1 I'd agree about those being the major worries - crop up every year I find #ukedchat

Transition is a great way to link primary & secondary staff and for 20:19 the students to present their primary learning #ukedchat #ukedchat any good parent mixer initiatives?strength of parent 20:19 relations easy to develop in the playground in primary RT @davidhunter: @PhilWheeler1 #ukedchat at secondary its gotta be about teambuilding.these guys are going to have to work 20:19 together for five years @syded06 we do this and find it helps. Totally worth while 20:19 #ukedchat @PhilWheeler Effective transition essential if education to progress 20:19 and not regress.

Some come in at Y7 but mostly from 20:20 other specials. No feeder school really. #ukedchat 20:20 @philallman1 Hmmm! #ukedchat RT @davidhunter: #ukedchat any good parent mixer initiatives?strength of parent relations easy to develop in the 20:20 playground in primary #ukedchat This summary of a transition project might help PRU 20:20 staff with Y10/11 transition http://t.co/Qyqxgtgf Hardest transition is from Reception to Y2. Y1 have to start year like 20:20 EYFS and end as more formal ready for Y2. Tough. #ukedchat @PhilWheeler1 I think the parents value the routine of bringing student for a school day without the added pressure of 'lessons' 20:20 #ukedchat RT @MattOswin: @tj007 Lots of 'getting to know' activities and 20:20 usually a trip on the Friday #ukedchat Transition is crucial. If we are serious about educ being a journey and not series of destinations for child it must be v. imp #ukedchat @philallman1 Shame our Secondary is not as pro active as we are. Still trying to get to speak to head of Yr 7 #ukedchat RT @JOHNSAYERS: Transition is a great way to link primary & secondary staff and for the students to present their primary learning #ukedchat Raising aspirations is a key part of transition work - helping children understand why they learn at sec & encouraging engagement #ukedchat

Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 RSA Opening minds curriculum with three hour sessions.... cross20:20 curricular modules #ukedchat @educationchat We only do that to them a couple of times 20:20 though... ;) #ukedchat @davidhunter so true. with these skills the can also become ind 20:20 learners #ukedchat What about middle schools? They have transition issues: 20:21 harder/easier #ukedchat @JazzieDe In that sense, I agree. However, I think it gives them a good chance to get to know staff and other pupils #ukedchat Oddly enough in school transitions can be harder than across school. We assume kids and staff know everything often at our cost! #ukedchat #ukedchat this way,if ch is shy or finds it hard to explain,all they have to do is show the teacher the card&all the info about him is there @philallman1 Unfortunately too much support is given to Primaries ICT support already, now being a trust relationships are changed #ukedchat @mr_chadwick @philallman1 yup. Even the confident ones have to start at the bottom and that's hard. #Ukedchat @Little_Sparra Nice idea. I may use one now with other staff :) #ukedchat @JOHNSAYERS Would help if secondary school teachers believed KS2 data and had higher expectations of Y6 children! #ukedchat #tongueincheek @PhilWheeler1 #ukedchat activities should level the playing field.too many successful sports kids coming up.too easy for them to dominate. RT @philallman1: Transition is crucial. If we are serious about educ being a journey and not series of destinations for child it must be v. imp #ukedchat #ukedchat readiness seems to be a strong theme in Nat curric review. A 2 year key stage structure seems to support ac and personal dev. RT @MartindalePaul: Help needed! My kids want to build our summer curric around go-karts!! Anyone made go-karts with KS2 chn? Ideas gtly rec'd! #ukedchat Had year 7 parents even. Parents concerned the pressure was relentless.Our transition might not prepare them for new expectations #ukedchat @JOHNSAYERS Not that long ago in Y7 pupils were taught how to use PowerPoint when it was taught in Y2/3. Pupils bored. #ukedchat Too often primary & secondary don't meet I think a jointly planned concept is so important secondary can gain more info on kids #ukedchat RT @MrWaldram: What about middle schools?

In school variation is ofter=n bigger 20:24 than cross school variation. #ukedchat We will be really pleased to work with any teachers that would like to use #MissionExplore for a transition project. Just @ me. 20:24 #ukedchat Why do we even have separate schools? Why not a seamless 20:24 education? #ukedchat @MrWaldram #ukedchat do you think a new lower key stage2 will 20:24 help this? Year 4 assessment with national expectation? RT @Educationchat: @JOHNSAYERS Would help if secondary school teachers believed KS2 data and had higher expectations of Y6 children! #ukedchat #tongueincheek RT @davidhunter: @PhilWheeler1 #ukedchat activities should level the playing field.too many successful sports kids coming up.too easy for them to dominate. @tj007 #ukedchat also inter-parent relations.that can help chn to settle in by families spending time together RT @philallman1: Oddly enough in school transitions can be harder than across school. We assume kids and staff know everything often at our cost! #ukedchat @philallman1 interesting. #ukedchat #ukedchat We did a social type thing for KS2-3 in the summer holidays with our BEST for vulnerable kids, lifelong friends were made there. We ran a really successful summer prog. New students (yr6) +yr 7 and also Yr 9 Peer Tutors. #ukedchat @ufaorg @HilaryNunns apparently I did but it was in response to a tweet that I won't edit - #thinkingallowed #ukedchat :) @ufasarah ok in theory but what happens if a phase of that school doesn't suit a child - what then? #ukedchat

@philallman1 That's a great point.

I suppose it's a security for the ch 20:27 too... @EngageinEd absolutely, if they already have a dream, so much 20:27 easier to guide and advise #ukedchat @JOHNSAYERS I agree. I developed a transition project across 6 primaries & 3 secondarys & it definitiely had advantages for ICT. 20:27 #ukedchat @davidhunter That is quite key - the transition for parents too. More teachers to liaise with KS2 to 3. (with the #ukedchat tag this 20:27 time!)

@Kezmerrelda But how often are NQTs put in Y1? I'd say quite 20:27 regularly. Or Y3 which has its own challenges. #ukedchat Just jumping into #ukedchat talking about transition. I feel some Year 6's are ready for the secondary model of schooling. @philallman1 so which was easier regarding transition then? #ukedchat RT @ufasarah: Why do we even have separate schools? Why not a seamless education? #ukedchat >>> crikey, imagine the size of the campus :-) @DWar Not true though - in school variation can be even bigger. #ukedchat RT @MissionExplore: We will be really pleased to work with any teachers that would like to use #MissionExplore for a transition project. Just @ me. #ukedchat @HilaryNunns @ufasarah #ukedchat I like this though.I think the atmosphere would change with young chn to care for RT @MissionExplore: We will be really pleased to work with any teachers that would like to use #MissionExplore for a transition project. Just @ me. #ukedchat @MrWaldram When do they need to be 'toughened up', or does evolution do that anyway? #ukedchat The discussion is moving naturally on to what makes outstanding transition links or materials? #ukedchat @hilarynunns my thoughts exactly! #ukedchat

Developing resources for year 6 transition to include careers ed and parental involvement, raising ambition #ukedchat @alexfinICT this sounds like my cup of tea. I will speak with you about this in more depth later if I may? #ukedchat I do think primaries have resp to give y6s more sec style curr but cost can be high in smaller schs. #ukedchat @Heatherleatt A sch we work with has a year7 unit too, works so well to have fewer teachers, diff breaks etc and acts a step-up #ukedchat Blog post 3 #pad tools-collaborate online with your team #edtech20 #engchat #cpchat #edchat #lrnchat #eltchat http://t.co/Sm4lVcmh #ukedchat @MattOswin @mrjonesICT Hoping to do the same with Edmodo, give Y6s access to Secondary site and integrate them with elder peers #ukedchat RT @Heatherleatt: #ukedchat can be a big step for yr 6s to go from small village school to a 6 form entry secondary.

Transition hosted by @PhilWheeler1 RT @tafkam1979: Most importantly, Y7s need to know that they have one person who actually knows and cares about them. Not just a 20-minute tutor! #ukedchat @tafkam1979 one school I taught at had a school-wide system of 'champions' that was like that. Every member of sch staff involved. #ukedchat #ls6 team launch new competition& brochure Top 10 #socialmedia practice in Europe #edtech20 #pln http://t.co/71yiv80e #edchat #ukedchat RT @Shaf_Hansraj: Primary students should be in sec schools as well as part of their education as secs often have spec equipment to aid learning #ukedchat Primary students should be in sec schools as well as part of their education as secs often have spec equipment to aid learning #ukedchat #ukedchat secondary school releasing students to be peer mentors and visit the year 6 classes during the yr to volunteer, works wonders

They remember it and it gives you common ground in first weeks 21:11 #ukedchat
