Session 254 – Thursday 28th May 2015 @ 8pm (BST)


pablo (1)It’s that time of year when many teachers across the land have completed all their assessments, filled in the relevant spreadsheets, inputted all the exciting data, and our pupils are ready for the next stage of their education. To some, this means a completely new school altogether – for others, it may mean going from one area of the school to another. No matter what, the transition phase is an important opportunity to help students smoothly move on. #UKEdChat sessions have previously explored this topic (see Session 84 and Session 207), but this session will focus on the following questions:

  1. How could primary and secondary schools better prepare pupils for transition?
  2. How could a secondary school develop closer relationships with its feeder primary schools?
  3. How do we ensure a smooth transition in foreign language learning between KS2 and KS3 when in many cases there are no links between schools?
  4. Do you have links with primary/secondary schools in your area to prepare students for the transition?
  5. What are the key issues that pupils face at the KS2/3 transition?
  6. What is your perception about what happens to pupil progress at the transition? – Do you have to revisit work done in the previous year, due to the holiday slump?

The session takes place on the #UKEdChat hashtag on Twitter from 8-9pm (BST) on 28th May.

Special Educational Needs

 Some people said it would not last. Some people have even tried to put hurdles in the way, and stop it altogether! Others have embraced it and Friday 26th June 2015 marks the FIFTH birthday of #UKEdChat Sessions (see the full archive here)

Thank you to everyone one who has believed in this fantastic way of teachers collaborating, sharing ideas and resources.

    The use of 3D printers in the classroom? Is it just another fad or a really useful piece of educational hardware?

  2. We are very excited about this! x

  3. Sounds great!
