Transitioning from one year group to the next can be a daunting prospect for pupils. It can mean new teachers, new classrooms and even new friendships. Moving from one school to another is an especially big transition, and lots of pupils feel anxious and worried about it. Others feel excited and hopeful.
This activity encourages pupils to both look back at the previous year, and then forward to the next.
The activity involves taking two flags and, on the first, writing down something that the pupil will be sad to leave behind and for which they are particularly thankful. On the second they are encouraged to think about something they are looking forward to or about something which they are worried about.
