Year 6 Transition Challenges - Keep Sending Us Your Pictures!

We’ve been very impressed with how the new Year 6 HAB girls who are joining us in September have been responding to the challenges we set them in our weekly Transition Passports.

Food Tech challenge

We asked girls to research how to use a knife safely and then chop ingredients to make a dish for their family. Georgina N from Keyworth Primary School made some delicious tomato soup!

Georgina also took part in our Modern Foreign Languages challenge by introducing herself in French.


Meanwhile, Isabella CA from Lucas Vale Primary School introduced herself in Spanish.

Hello my name is Isabella

Hola mi nombre es Isabella

My primary school is Lucas Vale

Mi escuela primaria es Lucas Vale

I like athletics

Me gusta el atletismo

I don't like spelling and mashed potato

No me gusta la ortografía y el puré de papas

I am hard-working, fun, determined, competitive and sporty

My journey to school

Isabella CA also sent us pictures as she practised getting from home to HAB.

"Here I am, I have arrived at Harris Academy Bermondsey."


Art challenge

We asked girls to recreate a famous artwork using themselves and their surroundings, and find out interesting facts about the artist, the art movement they are part of, and their work. We were particularly impressed by Isabella A from Ilderton Primary School who recreated 'Daughter of Soviet Kirghizia' by Semyon Chuikov.

Great work girls, keep doing your Transition Passports and sharing them with us!
