All the work posted in maths and English is on the transfer curriculum. Other things to focus on include:


  • Make sure all computation (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) is accurate, with a quick recall of tables facts.
  • One paper completed in a quiet area for 1 hour each week (it is crucial that they get used to this timing). Any discuss of papers can be done on Google Classroom.
  • Papers are good practice but learning comes from corrections.
  • If signed up to Transfer Tutor make regular use of it.
  • Some of the work sent home may not have been taught, so go back and forth to it as they make connections in learning.
  • A few booklets from the second pack of transfer work is from very late on in the year; so use your judgement about what your child can achieve and when to administer that work. 
  • Don't go overboard - you don't want to put them off.
  • If using previous past transfer papers please don't use 2011 and beyond as we will be using these in Yr7.
