Transition from Year 6 to Year 7 English: Units of Work. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
These curriculum materials have been designed to help upper elementary students in England make a successful start at secondary school. These transition units consist of one unit involving 10 lessons at the end of Year 6 and a second unit of six lessons at the beginning of Year 7. The units use teaching objectives drawn from the primary and Key Stage 3 Frameworks for teaching literacy/English. Each Year 6 unit sets out to provide useful information about students' attainment in a manageable form by passing on information on students' strengths and weaknesses in certain aspects of the curriculum. The assessments and targets arising from the units can also be used to inform the teaching programs developed by local literacy summer schools. The materials are divided into the following sections: Introduction; Framework Objectives; Introduction to Year 6 Unit; Two-week Plan for Year 6; Year 6 Week 1-Detailed Lesson Plan of Days 3 and 4; Introduction to Year 7 Unit; Two-week Plan for Year 7; Year 7 Week 2-Detailed Lesson Plan of Days 4 and 5. Contains targeted text resources. (NKA)
