The Polar Explorer Y6-Y7 Transition Project
This resource provides a framework for teachers to run a transition project with Year 6 pupils to help them with the move from primary to secondary school. The project is based on the theme of Polar Exploration and aims to enable pupils to use and develop a range of STEM skills that they will ultimately need to become independent learners in the STEM subjects. The resource provides a timetable for the process and a suggested series of activities for children to get them ready for the transition to Year 7. It contains several different parts involving both primary and secondary staff which should take place over a number of lessons. Carefully planning and good communication between the primary and secondary staff will be the key to running a successful project.
This resource has been provided by STEM Learning. It may be used successfully as a stand-alone project, or be used as part of the wider Polar Explorer Programme.
