Transition Projects for Foundation, Key Stages 1-3

Workshops for Schools and Nurseries have experience of delivering successful and effective transition projects. Please ask us for details for Summer 2013 if you are thinking about transition weeks to help children become familiar in their new school environments.

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

We aim to provide a range of different experiences and opportunities for pupils who wish to attend the programmes.

All practitioners and experienced art educators 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 workshops we deliver.  WFS will plan and prepare a programmes of activities to meet the needs of your pupils and link with your themes if desired.

We will deliver projects allowing for:

Communicating and liaising effectively to meet the needs of the pupils.
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.

Testimonals

In terms of planning and delivery of  the programme, WFS were  prompt, reliable and  highly competent.   They instilled me with confidence particularly on the first day -  everything ran like clockwork because due consideration had been given to the “devil in the detail”.   I was grateful to be able to relax the reins and leave WFS (Adele Deane) to manage as well as deliver the project.

The Extended Services Cluster commissioned WFS to deliver two summer transition projects. WFS 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  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.  Feedback from staff, children and parents was extremely positive and the activities met our objectives of encouraging children to appreciate and value the diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances across the cluster.

Children were able to familiarise themselves with the school and each other and thus enable a stress-free entry into the Junior School.  All the comments from parents, children and the school were very positive.  Children really enjoyed the activities. Hall Green Extended Cluster

I was so impressed with the service provided that I have asked WFS to provide activities for the October 2010 half term.  Fantastic news - thanks for being so efficient! Will publicise your organisation positively for you amongst colleagues in authority! St Annes Primary School Solihull
