Next steps: embracing change and transition in uncertain times


These primary home learning resources will equip your pupils with the skills and strategies they need to manage their feelings about moving to the next stage of their education and lives.

Acknowledging the impact of school closures, the lessons encourage pupils to reflect on the range of opportunities and challenges that they might experience as they move from one key stage to the next, as well as how they can manage these. Pupils will also be able to analyse different sources of support and assess who and what can help them, both during school closures and in the future. Finally, pupils are given the opportunity to celebrate their successes in school so far.


These lessons help pupils to:

  • Identify feelings about moving to the next key stage
  • Explore the impact of school closures on transition
  • Describe the changes that can occur as they move to the next key stage
  • Assess the challenges of transition and strategies to manage these
  • Identify sources of support
