YEAR SIX INTO YEAR SEVEN TRANSITION 2020
Although the schools have been closed to most students over the last few months, our Year Six into Year Seven Transition Team have been working harder than ever to ensure that every Year Six child coming to Chauncy has a full, although mostly virtual moving up experience.
Mr Crawley, the transition team and I have set up a website in Google Classrooms and throughout June we have posted daily videos, activities and messages to help the students become familiar with our school and how we work in Year Seven.
I have visited most students in their primary schools or have met them online via video conferencing. We have also spoken to year six parents and teachers using video technology to make sure that we are fully informed of each child’s abilities and needs.
Students have already chosen the Modern Foreign Language that they wish to study next year and are currently designing and creating their personalised ‘shields’ which will inform us of the things that are most important to them. The best ones will earn House Points ahead of September.
This week students will learn which form class they have been assigned and they will take part in a series of live lessons with their form tutor, including a virtual tour of the school.
In July students will come into Chauncy School for either a morning or an afternoon face to face session, as we have designed a safe, socially distanced programme of activities which meets government and Public Health England guidelines.
Hopefully, we will return to school as usual in September and I am sure that our Year Seven students will be well prepared, enthusiastic and ready for an exciting first year at Chauncy.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK 26.06.2020 - EVA KEEN (& ASH)
Eva Keen (7ASH) The Art and Design Hotel Project task this week was upcycling. The ideas behind the table centrepiece and hard work put into it's creation was exceptional.
Lisa Smith (Head of Art)
"I decided to create 2 upcycled products for the hotel this week. To start with, I collected some twigs whilst dog walking and cut them down to a size I was happy with. I then took a used glass coffee container as the centre of my vase. Then I took some natural string/ twine and tied the twigs together to encase the glass jar. This is my natural, eco-friendly vase which could be used as a centrepiece at a table or the reception.
My second upcycled product is handmade tea light lanterns. Firstly, I took used tin cans and cleaned them out. Then I filled them with water and placed them in the freezer for the water to solidify over night. In the morning, I removed them from the freezer, found some stencils I liked which I then celletaped to the tins. Very carefully, I took a small screwdriver and a hammer to tap into the stencil designs which creates a small hole in the tin. I waited for ice to melt in the sun, dried out the cans and then sprayed them with spray paint to create a pretty effect keeping the colours elegant to fit in with the Hilton Hotel. Lastly, I added a little twine to the bottom of the white cans, and added the lit candles (making sure the twine was on safely so there is no fire hazard- you could always use battery operated tea lights for safety.)
Hope you like them."
