Week 1



Welcome students, parents and carers to our Transition Zone. You should, by now, have received a letter detailing important information and updates. You now know that we are going to be regularly updating this Transition Zone web page to help you remain enthusiastic and keep you well-informed about joining our KNBS family in September. 

Mrs Kendall
Head of Year 7

Our latest update includes a welcome video from Mr Clayton (Headteacher) and Mrs Kendall (Head of Year 7), a reading project for students to complete, with prizes being given in September, some FAQs for the students and a few other activities to keep students busy. 

Our next update will introduce you to the Form Tutors at KNBS, an announcement of the winners of the Praise Postcard competition, as well as the first demonstration lesson video from our Head of Maths – Mr Jones.

Student Activities 

Strive Crossword Did you complete the STRIVE praise postcard competition? Now have a go at completing this crossword puzzle to see if you remember what the different words within STRIVE mean!  Download

Reading Project Whether you have now returned to school or if you are staying at home, this reading project is for you. Try reading as many of these exciting books and completing as many of the reading challenges as you can – you could even complete them all! The project-makers that have made the most effort will receive prizes in September; just bring your projects in with you (or ask your parents to email them into KNBS). Download

Maths Times Table Squares Times table squares are a great way for students to keep their minds engaged in mathematics before starting with us in September and to practise those all-important times tables. We will also be uploading some other mathematics tasks for the students to attempt in the coming weeks. Download
