What Will My Child Study?
This year we have spent a lot of time thinking about how we can make students feel more confident in their first terms at Beckfoot Upper Heaton!
A number of BUH teachers across subjects such as English, Maths, Design Technology, History and Geography have been redesigning their Year 7 lessons so that they look and feel more like a natural progression from primary school.
We have worked with feeder primary colleagues to establish shared approaches to teaching key skills and also how we can use similar language to that used in primary school in order to consolidate the excellent learning that has been done by your child before they came to Beckfoot Upper Heaton.
We are also launching a number of transition projects with some of our feeder primary schools focusing on STEM and getting students to be more active. There will be more information on this and how your child can become a Year 7 ambassador on some of these exciting initiatives by the end of the summer term.
