Transition from Key Stage 2 to 3 - creating a learning bridge from primary to secondary school
Transition from primary to secondary school remains one of the areas where it is difficult to create the right curriculum bridges that ensure there is seamless and sequential learning from year 6 into year 7 and beyond. There is a well researched and slightly shocking statistic that there is up to a 40% average dip in performance of pupils at the end of year 7. Whilst this can be for many reasons and some inevitable it is still something that needs addressing. Here at Learning Cultures we deliver a training workshop for those planning and delivering the year 7 and key stage 3 curriculum. It has some innovative ideas and will provide those who attend with a wealth of materials, resources and practical ideas to transform your transition policy or strategy. Crossing the Transition Bridge - Creating seamless learning from key stage 2 to 3.
