Week 4



Hello students, parents and carers. Welcome to our next update on the Transition Zone. We hope that you are finding them as fun and informative as we have making them. Our Transition Team has been busy this week making phone calls home to you all and preparing more activities and videos for the website.

In this week’s upload, we have a mini Science lesson from our Head of Science, Mr Hodgetts and a mini Technology lesson from our Technology teacher, Mr Woolley. This is accompanied by the Science and Maths FAQs. We also tasked some of our Year 7 students to create a video to answer any questions that they may have asked during their own transition day a whole year ago, to give you a student-focused view of KNBS. We have also created a checklist that we hope will prove useful in September to allow students to get back into being organised and prepared for school life.

Student Activities 

School Start Checklist When you start school at KNBS in September, it will have been a long time since you got up and ready for school. Often, this means that you may forget one or two things that you need for your school day. We have created a checklist for you to print out at home to stick somewhere that it can clearly be seen (on the inside of your front door or on your fridge perhaps), to help remind you of what you need to bring to school each day.  Download

Science Mini Lesson Mr Hodgetts, Head of the Science and Technology Faculty, has put together a mini-lesson for you to try out at home. Have a go at completing the activity he has created for you and send your attempts to – we hope that you enjoy the wonders of Science in this cabbage-based experiment. Have fun!
