Transition workshops

Kidscape's RISE Y6>>Y7 Transition workshops will be taking place over Zoom on the following dates:

Wednesday 29th July 10:00-11:30

Monday 3rd August 11:00-12:30

Thursday 13th August 14:00-15:30

Tuesday 18th August 10:00-11:30

Wednesday 26th August 14:00-15:30

Tuesday 1st September 10:00-11:30

 

RISE focuses on building children's resilience and readiness regarding transition from Y6 to Y7, while also exploring the impact of lockdown on this transition. The workshop content looks at areas including building and maintaining positive relationships, dealing with peer pressure, and managing bullying situations. This is done through activities related to recognising and regulating emotions, noticing and reframing thoughts, working together to explore scenarios and design solutions, and supporting children to feel upskilled and capable of effectively managing change. You can read more and watch a video about the workshops at https://www.kidscape.org.uk/kidscape-programmes/rise-transition-support/

All RISE transition workshops also involve an optional parent-carer workshop running in the evening of that same day, from 17:30-19:00. The aims of the Parent-Carer Meeting are:

  • to explore how parents/carers can best support their children during the transition from Y6 to Y7
  • to share experiences and best practice with other parents/carers in a similar position
  • to explore challenges that may impact children's experience of Y7, particularly looking at the effects of lockdown 
  • to learn about where to signpost for support, and how to communicate effectively with schools if issues come up like bullying or social disengagement
