Transition from Year 6

Hello Year 6!

We hope you find this information useful to help with transition to secondary school.  Obviously, transition will look slightly different to normal during 2020, so we hope to keep you up-to-date as much as possible.  If you have any questions, please email us at friendsofladywood@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk or speak to your class teacher.

 

RELATIONSHIPS EDUCATION – During this last half term we would ordinarily be doing sessions on Puberty and Growing Up in school with the Year 6’s. We would be covering how their bodies will change during Puberty  (including periods for girls), how to practise good hygiene and how to manage changing emotions. Many of the the Year 6’s have covered elements of this before as it is part of our Relationships Education curriculum that  builds year on year right from Early Years through to Year 6. However we would appreciate that you consider covering some of these elements whilst children are learning at home. We understand that these are sensitive but important issues- if you require any support or access to any symbol support / worksheets / powerpoints to help with these discussions please email me at hazel@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Regards Claire and the PSHE team

Leaver’s Assembly Song
As part of the Leaver’s Assembly this year, we are going to create our own virtual Ladywood choir.
We will be singing (and signing) the song ‘True Colours’

If you would like to be included, here is what you will need to do:

  1. Learn the song lyrics and signs from the video with Nikki.
    Make sure to use this version, as it is a little bit different from the original song.

    Lyrics:
    You with the sad eyes, don’t be discouraged,
    Oh I realise it’s hard to take courage,
    In a world full of people,
    You can lose sight of it all,
    With darkness still inside you,
    Makes you feel so small.And I see your true colours shining through,
    I see your true colours and that’s why I love you,
    So don’t be afraid to let them show your true colours, true colours,
    Are beautiful like a rainbow.Show me a smile then,
    Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember when I last saw you laughing.
    If this world makes you crazy and you’ve taken all you can bear,
    Just call me up because you know I’ll be there.And I see your true colours shining through,
    I see your true colours and that’s why I love you,
    So don’t be afraid to let them show your true colours, true colours,
    Are beautiful like a rainbow.

    And I see your true colours shining through,
    I see your true colours and that’s why I love you,
    So don’t be afraid to let them show your true colours, true colours,
    Are beautiful like a rainbow

2. Video yourself singing and signing along with the Youtube video of Nikki.
You will need to video yourself in landscape
You will also need to sing and sign along to the video using headphones (so you can hear and see the YouTube video but we can only hear  and see you!)

3. Send your finished video to friendsofladywood@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk by 3rd July and these will be put together to make our amazing virtual choir.
If your video is too large to send directly via email, try using ‘We Transfer’- it is a free service and will send us a link to download your video.

If you have any questions, email us at friendsofladywood@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk.
