To aid the transition to secondary school we provided the new Year 7 students with the opportunity to work with the  other members of their year in a variety of exciting activities. The transition between primary and secondary school can be a daunting time for students, therefore we have introduced a Team Building Day as a settling in activity which aids the transition process and ensures students feel comfortable, happy and enjoy the day whilst making many new friends.

The teambuilding session was run by ‘The Problem Solving Company’, with an aim to encourage our new students to work together and boost interaction, enabling them  to foster new relationships and gel with their peers. The activities provided a mixture of problem solving challenges with a hands on approach to solving 2D and 3D puzzles. Students were encouraged to work with each other in a fun environment.

The day proved enjoyable and informative for the students and also allowed them to get to know their new classmates at Upton-by-Chester High School.
