Preparing for Year 6 at Bilton Grange

For the last seven weeks at Bilton Grange, Mr Moss and Mr Crooks have been working with Year 5 in preparation for Year 6, through theory and engaging practical sessions. The focus of the theory sessions explored the importance of our five key social skills, looked at how these have been used in a professional environment and how these can be transferred from sport to an everyday setting.

The practical lessons then focused on a variety of competitive, problem solving and team games. Some of the activities included tchoukball, benchball, mini athletics competition and a mixture of games that developing cognitive and effective team work skills, while all demonstrating our key social skills.

Ultimately, this unit of work has prepared the students for the transition into Year 6 and will also prepare them to be good role models to those younger children in school.

Well done to all.
