St Julians School

Year 6 Transition 2019

We have had some very nervous and excited faces in our corridors this previous week as our annual two-day Year 6 Transition experience took place. This experience gave our new intake of students a sense of belonging in their new school. Through the attendance of lessons, assemblies and general day-to-day activities, the Year 6s had the opportunity to 'break the ice' of starting a different school.

The two-day event kicked off with their first ever assembly in the main hall, where the up-coming students were given information about St. Julian's School, finding out which form teacher they would have and which House they would be joining in September. 

However, the day had a poetic atmosphere as this was also the last school day for our Year 13 students. Mrs Wynne has actually chosen ‘The Circle of Life’ from The Lion King as the year 7 group’s signature tune to commemorate this. Year 13 attended their Leavers’ Assembly and left the site for the last time as our new intake of students were arriving for the first time!

Day two commenced with a slightly more relaxed atmosphere as the students arrived in their sports kit ready for a productive and active day at St. Julian's School. With the day consisting of digital project lessons and a PE event to finish, the Year 6s were in for a fun final day at secondary school. This event was generously supported by Newport Live as they taught the students various sporting activities.

As the fun in the sun took place, St. Julian’s School provided water bottles for the active afternoon.

We would like to say thank you to everyone who supported and participated in this two-day event and to Newport Live for supporting the final afternoon’s events. We enjoyed meeting all of our Year 6 students that will be joining our St. Julian's School community in the next academic year and look forward to seeing you in September.
