Year 7s Visit Their Old Primary Schools to Help 2019 New Starters

At the beginning of the June, around 30 Year 7 HAB girls visited their former primary schools to speak with the pupils about transition to secondary school.

We conducted sessions on finding friends, extracurricular clubs, homework, uniforms and how to use a timetable – which can be a bit scary to think about when you are still at primary school!

Our Year 7 pupils opened their school bags to proudly display their exercise books, allowing the primary pupils ask questions about how they organise themselves for a school day and how a school planner works.

There were many opportunities for questions throughout the workshops so the Year 6 and Year 5 pupils could find out more about Harris Academy Bermondsey and transition to reassure the primary pupils about the move to 'big school'.

The primary pupils were interested the extracurricular clubs as a way to meet new people and also appreciated the array of stationery!

One primary teacher commented: "The girls found it very exciting and especially enjoyed asking questions to the Year 7 girls about their experiences."

The Year 7 pupils also found the workshops a valuable opportunity. "Making sure the Year 6 are prepared for HAB was inspirational," said one HAB girl. "Helping them out, so they are prepared and make an easier transition into secondary school, was nice."

The Year 7 girls were phenomenal ambassadors for Harris Academy Bermondsey, respectful of all the queries the Year 5 and Year 6 girls had about transitioning to secondary school and made me as a teacher very #ProudToBeHAB.
