Workshops for Schools and Nurseries have experience of delivering successful and effective transition projects. Please ask us for details for Summer 2015 if you are thinking about transition weeks to help children become familiar with their new settings.
Projects that we have delivered include:
- Transition from Nursery to Reception
- Transition from Reception to Key Stage 1
- Transition from Key stage 1 to Key stage 2
- Transition from Key Stage 2 to Key stage 3
Artists aim to support children to develop social and communication skills by encouraging co-operation through group work, partner work and team work. An active, kinaesthetic approach to learning is encompassed in the work we do.
We will deliver projects allowing for:
- Communicating and liaising with ‘ Extended Services.’
- Producing plans to ensure smooth and effective running of the project.
- Ensure effective delivery in terms of communication, resources and organisation.
- Documentation of all stages of delivery.
Workshops for schools really helped towards the smooth transition for the new students starting Year 7 this September. We ran a two-week course which Workshop for Schools were able to provide professional tutors that the students really engaged with and the feedback from both students and staff were very positive. Workshops for Schools were also able to help us with additional tutors at short notice when our numbers increased. Many thanks, Steve Bushell Myton School Warwick Summer 2021
The Extended Services Cluster commissioned Workshops for Schools and Nurseries to deliver two summer transition projects during the summer break . One project focused on children starting school for the first time and the other at those moving between key stages 1 and 2.
Workshops for Schools and Nurseries were given the initial project brief and compiled two excellent project plans complete with intended outcomes for the children and how they proposed to evidence their work. Their planning also included full risk assessments of the activities they were to undertake and the venues which the Cluster had arranged for them to use.
During the delivery of the programme all staff from Workshops for Schools and Nurseries engaged well with the children and liaised effectively with the parents ensuring the safeguarding of the children at all times. The children reported to have enjoyed the project and activities they were offered .
A Brilliant time was had by all and feedback from the kids that took part in the workshops for schools sessions included comments such as ‘brilliant!’, ‘mega!’, and ‘much better than school!’. We were really impressed with the professionalism and talents of the practitioners and as Summer School Leader, I felt that I could relax in the knowledge that the children would all be engaged in fun, challenging and worthwhile activities. The two workshops that stood out particularly for me, (others may have other favourites) were Ali’s junk alien, where each child was engaged with an activity right from the start and what a brilliant end piece, and Jo’s moonwalk. Jo had a great relationship with the kids and her tuition was so slick that they were able to remember the routine a week later. All in all wfs helped me to run an exciting and engaging summer school that exceeded the kids expectations. Claire Haigh liverpool.
