As their time at King’s Hawford comes to an end, our Year 6 pupils have been involved in a number of transition events designed to ensure their move to “Big King’s” is completely seamless!
Over the past week Year 6 have welcomed teachers from the English department at King’s Senior. Mr Low, Mrs Lucas and Mrs Fellowes led each Year 6 class for a session that focused on poetry. Pupils were tasked with creating their own poems around the theme of ‘Freedom’. The work they produced would later be performed as part of the Poetry Slam element of Arts Week. The children made a good first impression with the teachers. Staff from King’s Senior were impressed with their knowledge and behaviour. It was a great opportunity for our pupils to meet with some of their future teachers. The poems produced were wonderful.
On Thursday after the festivities of Grandparents’ Day drew to a close, all Year 6 pupils headed across to King’s Senior where they joined up with their counterparts from King’s St Alban’s. The children then met with their new form peers and teachers before heading to their new classrooms. Once settled in their new classrooms pupils took part in some ‘getting to know you’ activities.
The evening culminated with pupils being joined by their parents in College Hall for refreshments. Headmaster of King’s Worcester, Mr Doodes gave a presentation alongside Head of Lower Years Miss Arnold.
Over the past two years our current Year 6 pupils have been preparing to make the move to Big King’s and with less than a week left at King’s Hawford events like this are extremely important and are designed to remove any anxieties that might exist.
