Our Big Summer of Fun
Our Bristol Metropolitan Academy Big Summer of Fun 2021 is running from 16th August 2021 to 20th August 2021 and will offer our young people and our wider community opportunities to learn, play and make new friends this summer.
We are currently finalising our activities for this week so please check back here for updated information.
What is the Cabot Learning Federation Big Summer of Fun?
The project is supported by the Government’s significant additional funding to support pupil transition from Year 6 to year 7 – and across the Cabot Learning Federation, our schools are aiming to support as many children, across all age groups, as we can. Department for Education (DfE) research estimates that the impact of the pandemic on learning has been significant. The DfE has also stated that children and young people’s mental health suffered during lockdown. At the Cabot Learning Federation, our strong commitment to our HEART values means that we are both determined and well placed to support children in communities who have been the most adversely affected by the past year by providing opportunities for them to re-engage, play and experience a joy-filled programme of activities this summer. The Big Summer of Fun at the Cabot Learning Federation will prepare all of our young people for success by focusing on five key areas:
- Providing a broader benefit for families and communities
- Supporting our most vulnerable children and young people
- Continuing an open conversation about pupil mental health and wellbeing
- Improving education engagement
- Helping Year 6 pupils to transition with social skills, learning and making friends
More information will be available shortly so please watch this space
Preparing for Transition
We would like to share with you a great online learning resource, ‘Be Ready to Be Remarkable.’ It is a resource to help prepare Year 6 pupils for secondary school, created in partnership by BeReady and Academies Enterprise Trust. It consists of three online content modules, designed to guide Year 6 pupils on their journey to secondary school.
- Head: What is different?
- Heart: What am I worried about?
- In the bag: What do I need to remember
