BE AWESOME, GO BIG (BA, GB)- transition resources.
These resources have been created to prepare you for the transition to secondary school.
The lessons are based on the books You Are Awesome by Matthew Syed and Go Big by Matthew Burton, however you don't need copies to complete the sessions. You might remember I had started to read the 'Go Big' book in class and will continue to record myself doing so along with 'You are Awesome'.
Each session will take you through some big ideas to help you on your way to secondary school. You should work through each interactive lesson over 2-3 days, recording answers in the accompanying workbook- either for you to copy down into books, print and complete by hand, or type onto the PowerPoint version.
The transition tasks will replace our usual 'Other Tasks', however, you can always explore the 'Optional Tasks' gallery whenever you'd like to complete something more creative or in addition to the transition work. There is also a 'Getting Ready to Go Big' challenge grid you might like to engage with.
