Year 6 Transition Workshops
Little Star Writing Transition Workshop are designed specifically for year 6 students to help them with the leap from primary to secondary school. These worshops provide a basic overview of the kind of work you would expect at secondary school, with a focus on introducing students to the art of annotating, drafting, planning, and essay writing.
We give the students some simple rules to follow, introduce them to self-evaluation, teach them using a variety of activities, games and group work, and show them that Key Stage 3 writing doesn't have to be difficult or boring. In fact, it can be a simple, creative process - like writing a story.
These three-hour intensive workshops provide students with the key skills and knowledge to start year seven with confidence. Spaces are extremely limited, and the cost includes a three-hour workshop (and two breaks), all writing equipment, worksheets for annotating, drafting and planning, practise essay questions, and copies of extracts from R.J Palacio's 'Wonder' and John Boyne's 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'.
