Get ready for your transition to Malet Lambert in September by completing the activities below. New activities are added every week!
Can you write a letter to your new teacher?
Think about what you would most like to tell your new teacher about yourself. You could include who you are, your age, what your favourite subjects are, what you enjoy doing in your spare time, any achievements or something you are proud of, what you are looking forward to at Malet Lambert. You can also include questions you would like to know the answers to.
Keep the letter safe for the first time you meet your new teacher!
We know that many of you will be feeling both excited and nervous starting secondary school. The team at BBC Bitesize have put together a series a videos and tips about transition to Year 7. We’d like it if you could, to have a look at these as part of our ‘Be Malet Ready’ activities. We hope they are useful and answer some of your questions.
This week we would like you to have a go at our quiz. It will help you to become familiar with Malet Lambert and there are prizes to be won! To answer the questions, you may need to use the Transition Guide we sent to you in March.
Have fun and Good Luck!
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is kindness. Mental Health problems can affect anyone, at anytime. Helping others and being kind is good for our own mental health, well-being and happiness. We can show kindness in our words and our actions and they don't have to take much time or cost any money.
We would like you to perform an act of kindness to someone and if possible tell us about it by completing this form.
Here are some of the lovely responses we've had so far:
"I dropped off sweets at all of my cousins houses as a surprise, and left them a note." - Phoebe
"I've written letters to my family in Cornwall to cheer them up." - Katie
"I have done chores for my Mum." - McKenzie
"I sent my Granny (who works for the NHS) afternoon tea as a treat." - Emily
Positive health, mental health and well-being allow us to flourish and achieve. In the difficult time we are in, we would like you to think of the positives and to think about things you are looking forward to.
These can be school related and related to your transition to Malet Lambert but they can also be about anything you are looking forward to in the future. These will make a great discussion point when you meet the other members of your tutor group.
We hope you enjoy the activity!
