Year 6 Transition - New Starters

Welcome

On this page you will find some useful videos and documents that should have helped prepare you for life at Ripley St Thomas. New documents and useful information is currently being prepared for you and will be available here after your Information Evening. The videos below were originally prepared during lockdown when we were unable to open our doors so things are a little different now! We hope that you are as excited about starting as we are to finally meeting you all!

Literacy (2022)

You will have received your transition novel from the English Department that we would like you read over the summer. We couldn’t narrow down to one book so you might have a different book to your friends – these are three fantastic books on the theme of ‘Refugees’ – a really important and relevant subject right now.

In your transition packs, you were also provided with a postcard on which you should write a review of the novel you got. We can’t wait to hear about your favourite character or chapter in the book. Make sure these are posted in or brought to your first English lesson in September.

For an additional challenge this summer, have a go at completing some of the CUBIO literacy activities below.  To complete these, download the CUBIO card, choose a line of tasks (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) and bring these tasks along with your signed sheet to your English lesson in September.

As you embark on your Ripley journey, we’d like you to consider that not everyone’s journey is the same. Why not use the interactive link below to experience the journey of a Syrian Refugee – consider the challenges and decisions you might have to make Syrian Journey: Choose your own escape route – BBC News
