Transition from Year 2 to Year 3
Moving from one school to another can be an emotional time for many children and parents and both Hamptonwick Infant and St. John the Baptist Juniors work closely to ensure a smooth transition. There is a keen partnership between Hamptonwick Infant and Nursery School and St. John the Baptist Junior School with an excellent transition package, close staff liaison and two headteachers who have the same philosophy to education: high standards, fun and creativity. Both schools host Open Days for prospective families. We invite you to make a visit to our link junior school so that you can see that although we are two schools, we provide one seamless learning journey.
As we approach the summer term, Year 2 children are ‘buddied’ with a Year 5 child, throughout the summer term the children share a variety of experiences including watching key productions at both schools, reading with their buddies at St. John the Baptist. This culminates in a full Transition Day in July where the children will spend the day with their buddies and their new teachers enjoying fun activities, such as ‘Circus Skills’ on both sites.
