Last week around 300 Year 6 pupils from over 20 different Primary schools spent 3 days at Neale Wade Academy in preparation for the transfer to Secondary School in September.
On Wednesday 3 July we welcomed over 300 Year 6 children and their staff to an amazing Sports Festival where the children tried out different activities run by Sports Leaders and external coaches. We also had the opportunity to meet inspirational athlete John Willis from Power to Inspire. Everyone was impressed with the children’s enthusiasm and resilience and the Sports’ Leaders organisation and coaching skills.
Thursday 4 July saw Year 6 spending the day sampling lessons in a wide variety of subjects whilst starting to find their way around and being an Academy student for the day. The week came to a close with a day in new Year 7 tutor groups; getting to know a member of staff and forging new friendships through team building activities, and culminating in an inter-form quiz. It was a great week – thank you to all staff and students who contributed and to Primary school colleagues for their hard work with Year 6 in preparing them for transition. Looking forward to September!
