Year 2 Transition to Year 3


Welcome to all the children coming into Year 3 at Lionwood Junior School from Year 2 either at Lionwood Infant and Nursery School or elsewhere.  We are delighted that you have chosen our school!

This year in spite of the restrictions, we have managed to  arrange a Transition events for our new Year 3’s  in the last weeks of term.

We felt this was so important to do, as we know that starting a new school is always a bit of an anxious time – even if the children are excited as well!  It is particularly important this year, as most Year 2’s will have had long periods out of school.

On-Site Transition from schools outside Lionwood Federation
For children coming from schools outside the Lionwood Federation we are organising 1-1 visits which can be arrnaged by ringing the office on  (01603) 433014.  The child and parents can meet the Headteacher and the Year 3 staff ready for September.  We regret we cannot mix bubbles between schools but are also happy to offer a follow-up phone call with the classteacher so that parents can discuss any queries or concerns.

On-Site Transition for children from Lionwood Infant and Nursery School
We are not able to offer the full transition due to COVID restrictions but are offering two sessions.

On Monday 12th July 9.30-10.30am the Year 3 staff will visit their new classes at the Infant School.

On Tuesday 13th July 9.30-11.00am the Year 3 staff will go down to the Infant School and pick up the Year 2’s and bring them for a visit to the Junior School.  They will not be able to enter the classrooms but will see them and have a short tour and spend some time outside or in the hall with their new teachers 

Year 3 Parents Meeting 

We are setting up a Zoom meeting in place of our usual Welcome meeting on Wednesday 7th July at 4.00pm.  All parents will be sent a link. 

This will be a chance to find out a bit more about the school and to use the ‘chat’ to ask questions.

We look forward to meeting you all!
