Make a time capsule to seal and open at the end of the year. A transition day essential! This is an ideal project for getting to know your new class. Make an ‘All About Me’ time capsule envelope to seal up and save and then watch the delight on pupils’ faces as they open them up again at the end of the school year! In this All About Me activity, pupils fill in two fun activity sheets about themselves. They seal their All About Me sheets in an envelope and decorate a time capsule label for the front. Be as creative as you like with the envelope decoration - glitter, stickers, pens or paints! Then the teacher saves the All About Me time capsule envelopes and returns them at the end of the year to be opened. Children just love opening these and seeing how they have changed over the course of the year! You might like our other New Year resources: Class Poem Pack Recipe for a Happy New Year!

Transition DayQuick View

Transition Day

A moving up day presentation with activity. Children play ‘two truths and a lie’ and then create their own passports to enable them to move up to the next year group. The presentation is a simple powerpoint that you can edit to include the names of the adults in the classroom and create your own “two truths and a lie” facts. I would also add slides about the topics that are covered in the year - it contains screen shots of the activity in order to model to the children what to do. The activity has been been based on a version of a TES recommended resource by tafkam which is excellent, so I can take no credit for the original idea. I have created my own version more suitable for lower Key Stage 2 and hopefully easy to edit to include school logos etc. It should be printed or photocopied double sided. When I have done this activity in the past, I have held onto the children’s passports and returned them to them in the summer, prior to their new moving up day. It’s a nice way to get them to reflect on the year that was, too. (Please note: the photograph on the example is an example of one I created with my son, for fun, not of any pupil I teach! I’ve also blanked out his school logos and school name.) I hope this resource helps you to get to know your new class better!
