This book systematically describes the key concepts that underpin a successful transition programme to primary school, including talk, literacy, numeracy, executive functions, social and physical skills and wellbeing.
A framework for designing a robust programme that transitions students to primary school
In a rapidly changing world where pedagogies fuse together and educational research is exploring how we prepare students now for a future we can barely imagine, programmes that transition young students to school must be relevant to them, as well as to their families and communities. It’s just this kind of programme you can design with the framework that The Bridge to Transition sets out. This book systematically describes the key concepts that underpin a successful transition programme, including talk, literacy, numeracy, executive functions, social and physical skills and wellbeing. Through a series of reflective questions, it guides teachers to connect these areas to their own curriculum documents and the needs of their children.
Yet it’s so much more than a guide to how and what to teach children in the transition years. Working like an interactive journal, this book challenges and inspires teachers to constantly question the why of everything they are doing. Its outcome will see innovative teams of teachers creating the best possible transition programme for their unique students and community.
