Transition: It's Not Just for Children!
Primary Science, n136 p13-15 Jan 2015
Often when the term "transition" is heard, it is with reference to the move between key stages 2 and 3 (upper primary 11-year-olds moving to secondary school). Sometimes it refers to movement between other key stages and, less often, to movement within the classroom itself. Again, often, when the term is used it is in relation to children's learning: how to ensure and maintain their progress and support them in making moves at key points within their education. Children are at the heart of education, as they should be, but what about teachers? Looking more broadly at transition in relation to teachers can be of great value. In this article, the author encourages teachers to think more globally about transition.
