Stanwell School has produced a transition booklet that provides essential information and activities to prepare your child for secondary school. This is downloadable**** There is an email address in the booklet should you wish to contact the school directly. They will also be updating their website with further information. http://www.stanwell.org/ Stanwell Videos: It is advisable to watch the videos in order (1,2,3) but it is not essential to watch them all in one sitting. There is a lot of information contained in the videos and it is worth parents and pupils engaging with the content of each one. The videos include:
St. Richard Gwyn Catholic High School has sent out transition packs to all parents for pupils attending there. This pack includes a Google Classroom which will enable the children to access the resources they have provided.

Use the information guide on propaganda
During WW2, it was very important that information was given to the citizens of Great Britain. This information kept everyone informed of events both at home and around the World. There was a particular focus on encouraging as many people as possible to engage in the ‘war effort’, everyone contributing to the well being and safety of the country. The internet didn’t exist and posters were often used to inform and persuade people to assist the ‘war effort’. Look at the guide on propaganda - one of the techniques used to do this.
1.Study the posters shown, research these, what message were they trying to convey?
- Create a propaganda poster of your own about evacuation. Use the comprehension and the internet to give you further information.

Your feedback is needed!
Earlier this year, 5th and 6th year students from Palmerston Primary School have helped Vale of Glamorgan Council and sustainable transport charity Sustrans to create an Active Travel Map of Barry that will help people to walk and cycle more. Today we need the help of all pupils to see if the map works for all of you.
Please take a look at the new map (link below) and tell us what you think!
