Before you watch the transition video, list all the concerns you may have about moving from primary school to secondary school. Discuss this with someone in your house.


Finding the positive in every situation:

Match the negative comments with a positive one

a) My new school has so many great facilities such as a dance studio, sport gym, big dinner hall, and science labs.

b) I’m a bit worried about how much homework I’m going to get and that maybe I won’t be able to do it all.

c) I am now not going to have just one teacher- I’m going to have 10- How will I remember their names or where I’m meant to be each lesson?

d) My friends and I have arranged to meet up in order to help each other with our homework – it may actually be quite fun!

e) I am looking forward to having lessons with a mix of lots of different teachers- I’m certain to like most, if not all, of them!

f) I usually always play with same group of friends all the time, so it’ll be good to meet some new people and learn new games.

On PAGE 17 f the Upwards and onwards resource you’ll find more statements you can discuss.



What makes me special?

Think about what makes you a great friend.

What do you bring to friendships?
