Transition Lapbook Template packQuick View

Transition Lapbook Template pack

Transition to another school or class – My idea for this is that this can be built with a child, combining lessons and creativity and craft. Each component can be a lesson or part of a lesson. It is something for the child to take away at the end of your sessions. You could easily fill 4 to 6 lessons with what is in this lapbook. There are two versions, one in black and white so the child can colour the lettering etc and one in colour where they can just cut and stick. There are two alternative back covers which you can choose to add to the lapbook. One is a game about ‘Changes’ and the other is a weekly feelings diary. Of course you could add one of those to the back cover and just use the other separately. This resource could be a fantastic end of term project for a Year 6 teacher. The children will love all the little pockets and will be making something to be proud of. Included in the transition lapbook is: Name – child writes their name in a colourful way – they could write in bubble writing or decorate it anyway they wish. Picture– either take a photo of the child to stick here or ask them to draw themselves. Front cover title – Moving on My new school or new class worries – What sort of things are they worried about? Use the little monster writing sheets for children to write down their worries to put in the little pocket. Discuss these at each session and help to reassure the child about the changes that will happen when they move class or school. Questions about my new school or class – This is a perfect opportunity to answer all those questions about the new school or class. My autograph and message book – Let them collect autographs and messages from friends to take on with them to the next school or class. My goals and targets – This is a little layered book. The child has to come up with a target for the rest of the term, a target for the summer holidays and a target for the new school or class. All about me tag book – Lots of questions to answer in this little tag book. Treasure chest – Includes concertina books with some prompts but also includes a blank so you can ask different questions. The treasure box could contain anything that the child wants to keep safe. They could pop some little photos in there too. A letter to my future self – What do they hope for in the future? How can they see themselves when they are in the next class or in their new school. What will they be doing? What will they have achieved? Will they have new friends? A letter could also be written telling their future self of what they are doing now, any of their concerns or worries etc. Friends – The child can write their friend’s name and finish the image to look like their friend. All their friends can fit into the little pocket. Changes game (back cover) Feelings diary (alternative back cover)

Transition booklet for year 6 to year 7

This booklet works through things that year 6 pupils typically worry about when moving to secondary school. The activities each compare primary to secondary. They include: people, the work, timetables, friends, where to keep your 'stuff', places to go to feel safe, what to do when things go wrong (including the incredible 5 point scale, as this was originally written for a learner with a SEN), having different teachers, people who can help, things that are learned, bullying and break times.

Stages of the Demographic Transition ModelQuick View

Stages of the Demographic Transition Model

This is a more interesting alternative to textbooks to help students learn about the five stages of the Demographic Transition Model. Give out the note frames (in A3) and then have students rotate the information about each stage around - this is a 'market place' style activity, but moving the sheets is easier than moving students! Each stage also has information on a case study country. These were chosen to align with the popular Nelson textbook, so absent students can copy up with ease. I would welcome feedback on how the resources could be improved!
